Algerian Filmmaker Yamina Bachir Dies at 68 (News Central TV)

Yamina Bachir Chouikh, an award-winning Algerian film director, has died in Algiers.

The Lumieres Cinema Association said the 68-year-old director had been suffering from a long illness.

Her film Rachida, about a teenage teacher’s struggle against terrorism in Algiers, was her most well-known work.

The movie, which won several prizes all over, took her five years to make and was the first to be directed by a woman in Algeria.

Rachida has been the only Algerian film screened for the Un Certain Regard prize. Bachir was married to fellow Algerian director Mohammed Chouikh. She has a son and three daughters.

During the Black Decade, Bachir-Chouikh stayed in Algeria where she worked as a film editor on her husband’s films.
