Tony Gatlif's 'Exils', is an exuberant, free-wheeling, heartfelt journey swimming like a salmon against the traditional migrant tide of the Franco-Algerian community. Parisians Zano and Naima take a wild road trip from France to Algeria, the land of their parents', in search of themselves and their heritage, finding a richness and depth to both they couldn't have imagined. A visual and musical feast.
