AboutA Greek tragedy in a country at war with itself, Yema plays out Algeria's fratricidal civil conflict through an intimate family saga. Warda grieves for her son, killed by his Islamic insurgent brother, with only her beloved garden for company. But all is not as it seems in this searing modern drama, widely acclaimed at its Venice premier and beautifully shot against staggering desert landscapes.
