Message of Greeting from the President
of the Government of Catalonia for the
Academic Program of the WOCMES
Barcelona 2010 Congress
On behalf of the Government of Catalonia, I am pleased to welcome you to Barcelona,
capital of studies on the Middle East and North Africa, on the occasion of WOCMES
Barcelona 2010.
Catalonia is known for its solid Mediterranean tradition and vocation, which has meant,
among other things, a great interest in studies on the Arab and Islamic world and the
Mediterranean region. This interest is for obvious reasons if we consider its geographical
position as well as the role it has played in this area throughout history. This interest
has contributed greatly to promoting the creation of organisations such as the European
Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) or the large number of departments of Arab and
Islamic studies in Catalan universities, leaders in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern
studies, most notably the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB).
So it is in this context that the Government of Catalonia has supported WOCMES
Barcelona 2010, organised by the IEMed and the UAB. This support has been expressed
since both institutions were chosen to organise this 3rd World Congress for Middle
Eastern Studies, in early 2008.
Therefore, after more than two years of intensive preparations, I am pleased to present
a scientific programme with more than 500 academic sessions and more than 2,500
participants from 72 countries. An intensive task that, characterised by great excellence,
has aimed from the outset to facilitate exchange of knowledge between researchers,
strengthen networking and foster a diversity of approaches to studies on the Middle East
and North Africa.
I hope that your time in Catalonia and Barcelona is as pleasant as possible and that the
work undertaken during WOCMES Barcelona 2010 is rewarding.

Salutation de l’honorable Président
de La Generalitat de Catalogne pour
le Programme Académique du Congrès
WOCMES Barcelone 2010
Au nom du gouvernement de la Generalitat de Catalogne, je suis très heureux de vous
accueillir à Barcelone, capitale des études sur le Moyen-Orient et l’Afrique du Nord, à
l’occasion du congrès WOCMES Barcelone 2010.
La Catalogne est connue pour sa solide vocation méditerranéenne, vocation qui s’est
toujours accompagnée d’un grand intérêt pour les études sur le monde arabe et
islamique et la région méditerranéenne dans son ensemble. Un intérêt qui tient à des
raisons évidentes liées à la position géographique de la Catalogne et au rôle qu’elle a
joué dans la région tout au long de l’histoire. L’ancrage méditerranéen de la Catalogne
a ainsi largement contribué à la création d’organismes comme l’Institut européen de la
Méditerranée (IEMed) ou les nombreux départements d’études arabes et islamiques des
universités catalanes, qui, à l’instar de l’Université autonome de Barcelone (UAB), sont à
la pointe des études sur la Méditerranée et le Moyen-Orient.
C’est dans ce contexte que le gouvernement de la Generalitat de Catalogne a décidé
d’apporter son soutien à l’organisation du WOCMES Barcelone 2010, organisé par
l’IEMed et l’UAB. Un soutien qui s’est manifesté dès le choix de la candidature de ces
deux institutions pour l’organisation de cette troisième édition du Congrès Mondial des
Études sur le Moyen-Orient, au début de l’année 2008.
Ainsi, après plus de deux ans d’intenses préparatifs, j’ai le plaisir de vous présenter
aujourd’hui un programme scientifique de plus de 500 sessions académiques, réunissant
plus de 2500 participants provenant de 72 pays. Ce travail intensif, caractérisé par
un haut niveau d’excellence, a eu dès le départ pour objectif de faciliter l’échange de
connaissances entre les chercheurs, de renforcer le travail en réseau et de favoriser la
diversité d’approches des études sur le Moyen-Orient et l’Afrique du Nord.
J’espère que vous passerez un séjour profitable et agréable en Catalogne et à
Barcelone, et vous souhaite de fructueux travaux tout au long du WOCMES
Barcelone 2010.

Message of welcome from the Director
General of the European Institute of
the Mediterranean (IEMed)
As President of WOCMES Barcelona 2010 and Director General of the European
Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), I am pleased to welcome you to this great event.
Barcelona is a city open to the world with a clear orientation towards the Mediterranean,
this sea that touches and gives its name to a region that we identify with and which
includes this Middle East and North Africa that are the object of study of this congress.
Barcelona has inherited centuries of history that fuse with our sea. And this is why, in the
current context, it has also been the cradle of significant political processes which have
marked the most recent decades and reveal a change in our societies. Mediterranean
societies are diverse, complex and plural, but today they wish to bring together their
complex historical and cultural legacy and ambitiously envisage a shared and promising
future. Thus, in 1995 Barcelona hosted the birth of the Mediterranean policy of Europe
and the partner countries, the so-called Barcelona Process. Re-launched today with
the development of the Union for the Mediterranean and the European Neighbourhood
Policy, it aspires to build a common future of prosperity shared between the two shores
of the Mediterranean allowing us to overcome inequalities. Today, Barcelona symbolises
this ambition. In Barcelona and many other places, we believe, as obstinate as it may
seem, that this ambition is now more necessary than ever.
This endeavour has always been shared by both Catalonia and Spain, the main actors in
the process and catalysers throughout history of this sense of being a bridge between
cultures, a symbol of the contact between the Mediterranean peoples and a nexus in
the evolution of sciences, arts and beliefs. Our country’s mission as a bridge has been
exemplified by historical figures such as Ramon Llull or Averroes, who between diverse
cultures, making the practice of fusion into a real art. Today, centuries later, many people
follow their legacy, and here, in Europe and in other friendly countries, within diverse
disciplines and professional fields, they focus on the Middle East and North Africa.
Academics, scholars, researchers, professors, journalists, analysts, advisors, politicians,
diplomats, artists and interested members of the general public make up a corpus of
knowledge undoubtedly indispensable to WOCMES Barcelona 2010. In Spain, there is
a long-standing interest in the study of the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa.
The links that we have historically maintained with these regions have given us great
knowledge and experience that this congress will enable us to share with the world.
We are proud to bring together such an important representation of the intellectual
and university world interested in these issues in a distinguished academic and cultural
programme that, undoubtedly, will allow us to foster a high level, impartial, informed
and open dialogue based on shared values such as respect, tolerance, responsibility,
coexistence and good neighbourliness. One of the main objectives of the European
WOCMES
9
Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) is, in fact, to foster the production of knowledge
and act as a facilitator to create outstanding events such as this congress, which will
help us strengthen the links between the diverse fields of our societies. For us, it is a
crucial mission: to act as a facilitator to bring about a transfer between the theoretical
and practical world, between thought and the social dynamic; and to enable a confluence
of dynamics that generate new drives, new synergies and strengthen lines of work
between diverse disciplines, professions and study groups from different parts of the
world. Sharing and debating this knowledge will provide complementariness and multiply
visions of the future, interpretations and readings of reality, past and present, that we
hope will lend a note of optimism to an overly complex international context.
Our land, which has been and is the origin and destination of the most diverse human
movements, is characterised today as a host country. We hope you feel at home.
Today, it is a diverse and unique society at the same time. This also reminds us of
the responsibility we have assumed as a country in establishing the initiative of the
Alliance of Civilizations, and it is in this framework that hosting this congress means a
new challenge and the opening of new opportunities. As organisers, we have sought to
provide platforms of exchange and communication, to build this programme of academic
content and human contacts you are now holding and nurture it with your personal and
intellectual contribution.
WOCMES Barcelona 2010 will enable us to understand and explore everything that
affects the people who live in the Mediterranean region and, in short, to get to know
ourselves a little better. In 21st century society, all of us, wherever we come from, are
also in essence a little Mediterranean and undoubtedly share the enormous responsibility
of working to understand each other better.

Message de bienvenue du Directeur
Général de l’Institut européen de la
Méditerranée (IEMed)
En tant que président du WOCMES Barcelone 2010 et en tant que Directeur Général
de l’Institut européen de la Méditerranée (IEMed), j’ai le plaisir de vous souhaiter très
cordialement la bienvenue à cette grande manifestation. Barcelone est une ville ouverte
au monde et clairement orientée vers la Méditerranée, cette mer qui l’entoure et qui
donne son nom à toute une région à laquelle nous nous identifions ; une région qui
englobe ce Moyen-Orient et cette Afrique du Nord qui constituent l’objet d’étude de ce
congrès.
Barcelone est l’héritière d’une histoire millénaire qui se confond avec celle de notre mer.
Et c’est précisément pour cette raison que, dans le contexte actuel, elle est devenue
le berceau de processus politiques majeurs qui ont marqué les dernières décennies
et qui mettent en évidence le changement qui s’est produit dans nos sociétés. Les
sociétés méditerranéennes sont diverses, complexes et plurielles, mais de nos jours,
elles souhaitent unir leur héritage historique et culturel, même complexe, pour, dans
un esprit ambitieux, envisager un futur partagé et prometteur. C’est ainsi qu’en 1995,
Barcelone a accueilli la naissance de la politique méditerranéenne de l’Europe et des
pays méditerranéens partenaires qui a pris le nom de Processus de Barcelone. Ayant
été relancé de nos jours grâce au déploiement de l’Union pour la Méditerranée et à
la Politique européenne de voisinage, il aspire à construire une destinée commune de
prospérité partagée entre les deux rives de la Méditerranée de façon à vaincre toutes
les inégalités. Barcelone symbolise aujourd’hui cette ambition. À Barcelone et dans
beaucoup d’autres endroits, on pense que cette ambition, toute volontariste qu’elle
puisse sembler, se révèle aujourd’hui plus nécessaire que jamais.
Cette entreprise a toujours été partagée tant par la Catalogne que par l’Espagne,
les deux acteurs principaux de ce processus, les catalyseurs, au fil de l’histoire, de
ce sentiment de pont jeté entre les cultures, symbole du contact entre les peuples
méditerranéens, trait d’union dans l’évolution des sciences, des arts et des croyances.
Cette mission de pont exercée par notre pays s’est vu reflétée dans des personnages
historiques tels que Raymond Lulle ou Averroès qui ont chevauché entre différentes
cultures et qui, à force de pratiquer la fusion, en ont fait tout un art. De nos jours, bien
des siècles après, nombreuses sont les personnes qui continuent à travailler sur cet
héritage ; des personnes qui, ici ou en Europe ou dans d’autres pays amis, à partir des
multiples disciplines ou branches professionnelles qu’elles exercent, ont les yeux posés
sur le Moyen-Orient et l’Afrique du Nord. Des professeurs d’université, des experts,
des chercheurs, des enseignants, des journalistes, des analystes, des conseilleurs, des
hommes politiques, des diplomates, des artistes, le grand public en général forment un
corpus de connaissances qui, indéniablement, s’avérera primordial pour le WOCMES
WOCMES
11
Barcelone 2010. Il existe en Espagne un intérêt séculaire envers l’étude des peuples qui
composent le Moyen-Orient et l’Afrique du Nord. Les liens que nous y avons tissés sont
un bagage dont nous tirons profit, un bagage que ce congrès nous permettra d’ouvrir
davantage au monde.
C’est pour nous une fierté d’accueillir une représentation aussi grande du monde
intellectuel et universitaire intéressée par les thèmes de ce congrès qui sont axés autour
d’un programme académique et culturel de très haut niveau. Nous sommes certains que
ce programme nous permettra de lancer un dialogue ouvert, d’une très grande qualité,
un dialogue impartial, se fondant sur une bonne information et des valeurs communes
comme le respect, la tolérance, la responsabilité, la convivialité et le bon voisinage.
L’un des principaux objectifs de l’Institut européen de la Méditerranée (IEMed) est,
précisément, de favoriser la production de connaissances et d’intervenir en tant que
promoteur de circonstances exceptionnelles, comme ce congrès destiné à nous aider
à resserrer les liens entre les différents espaces de nos sociétés. C’est pour nous une
mission cruciale : agir en tant que promoteur afin que se produise un transfert entre le
monde théorique et la mise en pratique, entre la pensée et la dynamique sociale, faciliter
une confluence de dynamiques à même d’engendrer de nouveaux élans, de nouvelles
synergies et de renforcer des lignes de travail entre les différentes disciplines, les
différentes professions, les différents groupes d’études en provenance des différentes
parties du monde. Mettre en commun, débattre et partager ces connaissances nous
permettra de nous complémenter et de multiplier les visions d’avenir, les interprétations
et les lectures de la réalité, tant du passé que du présent ; des interprétations et des
lectures qui, nous l’espérons, apporteront un rayon d’optimisme dans un contexte
international devenu par trop complexe.
Notre terre, qui fut et qui est l’origine et la destination des mouvements humains les
plus divers, se caractérise aujourd’hui comme étant une terre d’accueil. Nous espérons
que vous vous y sentirez un peu comme chez vous. De nos jours, la société est à la fois
diverse et singulière. Ceci nous rappelle la responsabilité que nous avons acquise en
tant que pays en nous lançant dans l’initiative de l’Alliance des civilisations. Dans ce
cadre, accueillir ce congrès dans notre pays représente pour nous un nouveau défi et
l’ouverture de nouvelles opportunités. En tant qu’organisateurs, nous avons veillé à la
mise en place de plateformes d’échanges et de communication et à l’élaboration d’un
programme académique et de contacts humains. Il est maintenant entre vos mains et
c’est à vous de lui donner vie, de le faire croître par votre collaboration personnelle et
intellectuelle.
WOCMES Barcelone 2010 nous permettra de connaître et d’approfondir tout ce qui
touche les personnes qui vivent dans la région méditerranéenne et, en définitive, de nous
connaître un peu mieux nous-mêmes. Dans la société du XXIe siècle, d’où que nous
venions, nous sommes par essence un peu méditerranéens et, indubitablement, nous
partageons l’énorme responsabilité de travailler à une meilleure compréhension mutuelle.

approach that deals with “Yemen, At Last” through a visual
wandering, rich in information and critical in perspective.
Martyrdom: A Poster of Life and Concept
Organizer: Ayman Alazraq, Oslo National Academy of the Arts
Location: Hallway of the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts
Martyrdom is an everyday event that continues to perpetuate itself in
Palestine, which means all Palestinians are subject to death. So why
not give everyone the right to choose and make their own poster,
which has potential use in the case of martyrdom. The individuals
featured on the posters in the exhibition chose the backgrounds,
photos and the texts presented on each one.

The Mediterranean of the 20th Century. Realities and images
Organisation: European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) and EFE News Agency
With the collaboration of Government of Catalonia and Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
Cooperation
Curator: Tomás Alcoverro
Exhibition Room 1 to Palau Robert (Passeig de Gràcia, 107. Barcelona)
From 7 June to 29 August 2010
Opening hours: from Monday to Saturday, from 10 to 7 pm. Sundays and public holidays,
from 10 am to 2.30 pm
We propose a journey through the turbulent century we have left behind using 125 photos provided
by the EFE news agency photo archive, with the aim of recalling the most important events that marked
the course of the region during the 20th century. From the end of the great empires to the creation of
the new states; from bloody conflicts to the search for peace; from the traditional and rural world to
urban modernity. A collection of realities and views on this lively, diverse Mediterranean of ours.
Lawrence of Arabia. A cultured man
and lover of the Arabic world and
tongue, he was sent by the British
Government to help the Arabs fight the
Ottomans. He became one of the most
controversial figures in English history
and, above all, a legend. EFE
The Exhibition is divided into five sections:
“Tumultuous Start to the Century (1900-1930)“
“From the Belle Époque to the End of European Hegemony (1930-1945) “
“The Glorious Thirty (1945-1973) “
“Crisis and Withdrawal in an uncertain World (1973-1995) “
“Towards a Shared Mediterranean (1995-2010)”.
There are many Mediterraneans. The diversity of its people is so great that it calls into question
all the egocentrisms started by ancient civilisations and powerful contemporary hegemonies. The
Mediterranean has become the world’s most striking frontier, with a true fracture in the living standards
between north and south. At the same time, however, it is the meeting place between East and West,
where empires and cultures are born and die and where there are people who write from left to
right and others who write from right to left; where daily coexistence with the “other” is a permanent
challenge. The big port cities of the past and present are the main actors in its history. Three-quarters
of Europe’s population and half the inhabitants of the Arab counties live there. This string of cities –
Istanbul, Alexandria, Beirut, Tel Aviv, Algiers, Barcelona, Marseille, Naples and Athens – is the froth on
the coastal urban development which dominates the inland territories. It is where the problems of rising
demographics and a shortfall of housing and public services meet; it is where the spontaneous vitality
of the people has its raison d’être, where identities, religions and languages cannot be crushed by either
war or political conflict.

Through “Algerian Soul”, Neila Benbey wanders into the heart of Algeria presenting the listener with
some of the great classics of popular Algerian music in a contemporary translation, embellished with her
originality and transmitted via her Mediterranean fusion band.
The repertoire includes different versions of traditional and popular Algerian songs, including
arrangements of “Chaabi” music, pieces which have been redressed into more contemporary pop songs
such as “Chahlet laayani” and “Bakht” as well as some tribal pieces of Berber and Saharawi artists. The
group also presents personal compositions inspired by Saharan and Tamazight rhythms.
Dans « Argelian Soul », Neila Benbey voyage au cœur de l’Algérie pour nous présenter de grands
classiques de la musique populaire algérienne, adaptés avec beaucoup d’originalité au XXIème siècle
par sa propre troupe de « fusion méditerranéenne ».
Le répertoire compte des versions de chansons traditionnelles et populaires algériennes, des
arrangements de musique chaabi, d’autres transformées en mélodies pop plus actuelles, comme Chahlet
Laayani et Bakhta, et enfin certaines, plus tribales, d’artistes berbères et sahraouis. Il compte aussi des
compositions personnelles inspirées des rythmes du Sahara et des Amazighs.

In 1962, at the moment of independence, Jewish
and European minority communities left Algeria.
Four Algerians of Muslim origin searching for truth
about their own lives return to the last years of the
war 1955-63, which are also the last of French
colonialism. Between hatred and fraternities, they
take us on a journey through a hidden memory of
their relationships with their Jewish and Christian
neighbours. With them, we revisit the founding
myths of the new Algeria…
But will they find a resolution to their personal
myths?
Adil and Rachid have known each other since
childhood. Adil has never imagined his life in
Morocco; his dreams are all directed at the other
side of the Mediterranean. Following an adventure,
he lands in Bologna where his brother has been
living for years. Adil leads parallel lives in the city:
on the one hand, he is the model brother who takes
care of his handicapped brother; and, on the other,
he works for an unsavoury character who hires him
to do “odd jobs”. Trapped between the two lives,
Adil is once again faced with escape as the only
way out.

Keaton), now drives a taxi to make ends meet. His
customers are a motley cross-section of Ramallah’s
citizens: a young Romeo who hires the taxi to have a
place “alone” with his lover; a housewife who’ll stop
anywhere there’s a free-food giveaway (“Is this Fatah?
Hamas? Who knows? I just saw a line and got in”),
armed militia members (to whom Abu Laila points out
the “NO SMOKING” and “NO AK-47s” signs) and, in
one dramatically complicated case, an ex-convict who
leaves his cell phone in the cab. Our harried hero is also
trying to regain his former position (his frequent trips
to the Ministry of Justice are both comical and heartbreaking) and, today at least, needs a birthday cake for
his daughter.

This socially concerned film reveals that among
800,000 immigrant workers in Lebanon, some
150,000 are maids from Sri Lanka. Many find
themselves in situations worse than those they
left behind at home. Many have their passports
confiscated, some are locked up in their employers’
houses and are paid as little as $100 a month. The
situation drives many to run away, often to equally
bad or even worse problems. Others attempt
suicide. The film draws a bleak picture of an
unfortunate situation found in many Arab countries,
not just Lebanon.

Messages from Paradise
A film by Daniela Swarowsky & Samuli Schielke
In a village in Egypt, young men dream of migrating
to Europe where they hope to find all the good things
they lack at home: money, freedom, new horizons. In
Vienna, Egyptian migrants long to return home. Their
tales of migration reveal that the realities of living in
Europe are more complex and nuanced than they
themselves might have dreamt. Paradise, according to
both sides of this fictional dialogue, is always elsewhere. And perhaps happiness lies not in making old
dreams come true, but in finding new ones.

A film by Çayan Demirel
This is a documentary about Diyarbakir prison, where
some of the most horrific atrocities of state terror in recent
history took place after the military coup of 12th September 1980. The documentary exposes how the use of systematic torture and Turkification policies were imposed by
the state upon all prisoners, most of whom were Kurdish.
While the Turkish military authorities describe the prison
as a “military school”, the prisoners describe it as “years of
indescribable brutality”. The only way to break the chain of
atrocities was through resistance and self-sacrifice. The
prisoners took up the challenge to break it and 3 decades
later director Çayan Demirel takes up the challenge again
to show us what happened.

Sayed Kashua – Forever Scared
A film by Dorit Zimbalist
“I‘m scared of cars, of dogs, of snakes. I’m scared
of airplanes, helicopters, tanks and soldiers. I’m
scared of terrorist attacks. I’m scared of Jews, I’m
scared of Arabs, I’m scared that one day they’ll
put us in refugee camps”. (Sayed Kashua, Haaretz
Newspaper 2002).
Sayed Kashua always feels he doesn’t belong. The
Jews don’t like him because he is an Arab. The
Arabs don’t like him because he is successful. The
Arabs think he is a collaborator. The Jews think he
is an alcoholic. He is always viewed as The Other,
and he is always scared.
This is an intimate yet political portrait of a writer
and publicist who is also a loving husband and a
father of two. His family pays a heavy price for the
choices he makes and the perpetual wandering
from place to place, from nation to nation,
belonging neither here nor there.

The Glass House
A film by Hamid Rahmanian & Melissa Hibbard
The fringes of Iranian society can be a lonely
place, especially if you are a teenage girl with few
resources to fall back on. The Glass House follows
four girls striving to pull themselves out of the
margins by attending a one-of-a-kind rehabilitation
centre in uptown Tehran. Forget about the Iran
that you have seen before. With a virtually invisible
camera, the girls of The Glass House take us on
a never-before-seen tour of the underclass of
Iran with their brave and defiant stories: Samira
struggles to overcome forced drug addiction; Mitra
harnesses abandonment into her creative writing;
Sussan teeters on a dangerous ledge after years
of sexual abuse; and Nazila burgeons out of her
hatred with her blazing rap music. This groundbreaking documentary reflects a side of Iran few
have access to or paid attention to: a society lost
to its traditions with nothing meaningful to replace
them and a group of courageous women working
to instil a sense of empowerment and hope
into the minds and lives of otherwise discarded
teenage girls.

The Long Night
The One Man Village
La longue nuit
A film by Hatem Ali
A film by Simon El Habre
One night, three political prisoners are released
from jail, but a fourth one is not. Through one night,
one long night, the film depicts the details of their
release from prison back to life and their families’
reactions. The film also tackles the different lives
of the different members of these families in their
struggle to meet the daily needs of life where
some choose, voluntarily, to be in exile, while others
pay a very expensive price for staying: shunning,
isolation and marginalization. As one of the families
just released from prison awaits his “corner stone”,
the latter decides to head straight to his village,
his birthplace. Waiting for the daylight, the fourth
prisoner lives in a long night; he lives on the hope
that this night will one day come to an end.

Semaan is leading a quiet life on his farm in the small
village of Ain al-Halazoun in the Lebanese mountains.
The hamlet was completely emptied and destroyed
in combats during the civil war in Lebanon between
1975 and 1990. Today, many years after an official
reconciliation, its inhabitants, who are all from one
family, regularly go back to the village to cultivate their
plots of land or visit their houses and always leave
before sunset. In his comforting and humorous film,
Simon El Habre observes the life in his quasi-ghost village and tries to reflect on the collective and individual
memory in a country that seems to live in a collective
amnesia and is vulnerable to a new civil war.

The Other Side of the Mirror
L’envers du miroir
A film by Nadia Cherabi-Labidi
Selma, une jeune femme erre dans les rues d’Alger
portant un bébé tel un fardeau… Elle monte dans le
taxi de Kamel, où elle abandonne aussitôt son enfant.
Par ce geste, Selma a sans doute, mis son passé en
attente. Kamel, va, à son corps défendant, relancer ce
temps à l’arrêt qui est, en quelque sorte, aussi, le sien.
Mais peut-on évaluer l’intensité d’un feu seulement à
partir de la fumée qui s’en dégage. En allant au delà de
ce qui est apparent, on croise alors dans la vie comme
dans le reflet d’un miroir, son double, sa propre image.
Ce film est un fragment de miroir.

While exploring young Larbi Salmi’s sexual turmoil
at the time of Moroccan Independence (in the
50’s), this ninth full-length movie aims to enlighten
the great questions that nowadays rock the Muslim
cultural sphere: the links between sacrilege and
holiness, sexuality and freethinking.

Furigraphier le vide
A film by Hélène Claudot-Hawad & Nathalie Michaud
Comment être nomade aujourd’hui? Comment poursuivre la marche qui multiplie les horizons? Comment
occuper le vide? Ces questions douloureuses se posent
avec une violence accrue dans les espaces arides du
Sahara et du Sahel à l’économie asphyxiée, à la population criminalisée et aux territoires âprement convoités
pour leurs richesses minières. Pour résister au chaos
et au non-sens, pour lutter contre l’ultime dépossession
de soi : celle de l’imaginaire, quarante-quatre poètes
touareg réunis pendant trois nuits et trois jours en
novembre 2006 à Agadez dessinent des parcours
sonores libérés des entraves qui immobilisent
aujourd’hui leur société et réinventent à leur manière
les trames du présent.
Twenty tells the story of Mr Soleimani (Parastui), a
grim-faced lonely old man who pays minimum wages to,
and demands maximum hours from, the put-upon staff
at his banqueting hall which caters for both weddings
and funerals. He shows no sympathy or understanding,
despite their endless litany of woes: a one-armed cook,
for example; a widowed waitress ostracized by society
carrying her child around on her hip; and homeless staff
members who sleep in trucks or buses before they
come back in again the next morning.
As deprived and ill-treated as they are, however, the
staff are still desperate when Mr Soleimani announces
his intention to shut down in 20 days due to ill health,
after which the site will be sold, razed to the ground and
a condominium for the rich erected in its place.
