Today, Ales is ready. She returns to the terrace she once lived on with her mother, to finally free herself from the traumatic memory of this human being who stole her innocence forever. If her silence has never allowed her to exorcise this wound, her inner strength has guided her to this day of redemption and will allow her to regain peace.
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
After 10 years of forced engagement with the army, FaiÃ§al Ben is now part of this young generation of filmmakers that can be counted on. Self-taught, he has finally found in the 7th Art what he has been seeking for so long, his freedom of expression and creation.
FaiÃ§al has started a self-taught training to create a cinematographic background through readings, film screenings, field work with filmmakers sharing their know-how, several master-classes in festivals, and scriptwriting residencies.
Having started his career as an editor, then assistant director on several institutional films, short films and web series, FaiÃ§al also directed several videos of cultural and artistic events. In parallel, he started scriptwriting for his own projects of short and feature films, and for television series.
Following two experimental films (DÃ©calage, 2015 and Confusion, 2016) and a first short fiction film (Alter Ego, 2016), Ales is his second short film.
In post-production of his third short film (Femme Ã Clefs, 2018), he now devotes himself to writing a first feature film.
