The Curious Mr. Daoud

Spring Grants 2020 - Production Stage

Sidahmed Semiane / Feature Documentary / Algeria, Qatar / 90 min / Original Language: Arabic, French / Interests: Creative Documentary


The writer Kamel Daoud is one of a kind. His words unleash passions, acerbic polemics and condemnations as fervid as calls for his murder. A camera, installed in his quiet home, records his innermost thoughts while the country is in turmoil—amid the revolutionary Hirak Movement.

About the Director

The multi-skilled artist Sid Ahmed Semiane (also known as "SAS") was born in Algiers in 1971. A director, writer and photographer, SAS is the author of the best seller 'October, they speak', considered as the reference work treating the dramatic events of October 5th, 1988 in Algeria. SAS is both a word and a photograph lover; several of his materials were exhibited in Algeria and overseas. He began as Merzak Allouache's Assistant, and after collaborating on several other projects, he directed his first feature documentary 'Babylon Constantina' in 2019.
