Rachida DVD - 2002 film directed by Yamina Bachir.  A look at terrorism in Algeria through the eyes of Rachida, a teacher in one of the school districts.  'Rachida' uses a pretty, young school teacher, the title character, as the centerpiece of this story looking at the problems which beset Algeria in the 1990s when the country was struggling with civil war. This testament by its female Algerian director digs into life as a woman in the Sunni Muslim patriarchal culture and the day to day living with anxiety and fear as bands of guerrillas roam the streets. Rachida, a young and self-assured teacher at an elementary school becomes the target of terrorists when she refuses to place a bomb in her classroom. The DVD includes director interview and biography, discussion guide and film notes. In Arabic and French. Unrated, 100 minutes.
