In this part and the next one, I'm dealing with the relationship of the Kabyles with the dream of elsewhere. To reach that aim, I shot a lot in Kabilye, and also in other countries. Through the superimposition, the rapprochement between positive and negative, tape-to-film work, a research on the colour, an editing sometimes really short in which i intercalate some articles about the « kabyle cauldron », among other effects used, I try to give shape to these visions of an elsewhere, that are passing, changeable, often false. While printing the film, I worked a lot on the diaphragm, going voluntarily from overexposure to underexposure, in order to render « the blindness » (that is the fever) and the ignorance of some populations about this elsewhere they believe as an El Dorado.
