Synopsis: Young people are waiting to obtain a visa to go to Europe. All their applications are refused. But there must be a solution! A revolution? – This black and white silent movie was shot in just a few hours. The Battleship Potemkin was the departure point of the revolution. Abdelkarim’s Battleship is what remains for those who will never revolt. The citation of Eisenstein’s movie is precise; the “décalé” mood prevents the movie from drifting into mannerism and the denouement matches the darkest side of reality.
