Ordinary day of a street in Algiers, where a film is made and unmade under the gaze of a camera.
"I wanted to explore the subject of looks that question the look; the local people in front of a strange camera, an outsider, but also to question the looks of the future spectators who would see that film, summoned to make a subject and to give it its shape; because I put neither history nor subject strictly speaking, even if some people have considered the camera as a subject; but actually, I wanted to get away from it all. My goal: to try something. I believe that for this type of film, a subject could only affect the quality of what we see; it's basically an inventory seen by me in 2010 of this street”.
