ALGERIA: Fellag

Please enjoy this funny monologue from Algerian comedian Fellag – a “Who’s on First” type skit about the colonial French government trying to record Algerian names.

Fellag also has some serious acting chops – he starred in the Oscar-nominated Monsieur Lazhar (available with English subtitles) as an Algerian immigrant teaching at a Montreal elementary school as the children process the loss of their previous teacher, and as he works through the grief of what he left behind. It’s an incredibly poignant and touching film.
