LOIN DES HOMMES/ FAR FROM MEN drama, 101 min Algeria, 1954. The War of Independence is rumbling into being. In a remote one room schoolhouse in the Atlas Mountains, Daru, the son of Spanish settlers, teaches Algerian children French. One day, local French police officers appear with Mohamed, an Algerian accused of murder, and charge Daru with escorting him to trial in the closest city while they continue to fight the growing insurrection. The film is freely adapted from Camus’s short story The Guest.
