Al Malaika (Angels)

Europe, the land of milk and honey, lures desperate people from their home countries, in search of a better life.  For some the search ends in death.

In this short film, Olfa Ben Ali frames the immigrant experience using the imaginary of lost and forgotten angels, devoured  by the machinery that is the European system.

Their humanity now labeled by words such as ” refugee” and ”immigrant”, just as their skin has been define by the word ”Black”.
