ENOUGH! (Barakat!)

Set in war-torn Algeria in the 1990s, Enough! follows two women on the dangerous search for the younger woman’s husband, a journalist whose writings resulted in his disappearance. Both women represent anachronisms in Islamist Algeria: the younger woman is a doctor, the older a nurse with vivid memories of Algeria’s fight for independence.

Ignoring curfews and the constant threat of ambush by armed militias, the two women challenge the men they encounter to accept them and help them with their search. Their journey leads them across the picturesque landscapes of Algeria, to a deeper understanding of how their lives were shaped by their country’s history.

“An absorbing look at a woman whose inner determination is matched only by the unrest around her.” -Variety

“A tense, engrossing and brilliantly acted drama, ‘Barakat!’ is . . . a stirring tale of female heroism that confronts the uncomfortable history of a troubled region.” – London Film Festival

‘Enough!’ is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.

In French and Arabic with English subtitles.
