At home. A nuclear scar from the Algerian war

Over 50 years after the end of the war, a film director and a photographer, born of the conflict's opposing camps and child-heirs to the colonial history shared by France and Algeria, take us back to 1962 in the heart of the Algerian Sahara. 

From an irradiated desert area to the suburbs of Algiers, AT(H)OME retraces the consequences of a nuclear accident whose contemporary scars quietly question the responsibility of nations.
