In ASK YOUR SHADOW, the camera does more than film; it documents a diary of one’s homecoming. The film starts on 6 January 2011 when Algeria witnesses riots. After nine years, when the director Lamine Ammar Khodja returns to Algeria, he is forced to address his place and role in the country. As the train starts to move, his existential questions mix with the country’s political events that blow up in the region.
