Adila Bennedjaï-Zou

is a screenwriter and documentary filmmaker, born in 1973 in Tizi-Ouzou (Algeria). Her first documentary, Ralliés, about the soldiers who betrayed the French army to join the Viet-Minh, received the Prize of the Pessac Historical Film Festival. Her films, inspired by the micro-history trend, deal with anonymous destinies that have made “the great history”. Also a fiction screenwriter, she was awarded the Prix Genève-Europe du jeune scénariste for the film Garçon Manqué. In her sound creations, she combines autobiography and a form of “auto-sociology” to tell how the present is invented. Her documentary series Mes années Boum, PMA hors la loi and Heureuse comme une arabe en France mix first-person narrative, archives and intimate interviews. She was awarded the URTI Radio Grand Prix.
