The Road Behind¸ The Road Ahead is about a return to the roots¸ my Berber¸ Amazigh roots in Algeria¸ North Africa. Over the years¸ I have witnessed the assimilation of my culture away from the French colonial period toward Arabization¸ and now toward the west with the advent of the internet and wireless communications. This documentary aims to capture traditional Berber culture before the last pure generation - the generation of my mother¸ who never went to school¸ speaks only Berber¸ and live in a traditional Berber culture - vanishes. I chose to go back to my native village to produce the film despite the distance and the difficulties. The Berber culture survived for five thousand years through poetry¸ songs¸ dances¸ and traditions. Video is a new medium used to preserve and document the Berber culture. This is a contribution to its preservation and its promotion.I chose to go back to my native village to produce the film despite the distance and the difficulties.
