Chanson pour Amine
Festival year: 2010
Amine Amrouch disappeared on 30 January 1997, when he was abducted by the security forces in Algiers. Since that time his mother Nassera Dutour spends her days campaigning for truth and justice. She presides the Mediterranean Federation on Forced Disappearances (FEMED) and is a spokesperson of a movement created by the relatives of victims of forced disappearance in Algeria. "At first we asked the government to return our children alive", she says. "Now we ask them to tell us the truth and render their bodies." 'Chanson pour Amine' sheds new light on the impact of a forgotten war against Muslim fundamentalism. A war that has already cost more than 200,000 human lives.
