AFRICA AT THE OSCARS #6: Rachid Bouchareb

Born in Paris, France, but of Algerian descent, Rachid Bouchareb is perhaps Africa’s most nominated director in the history of the Academy Awards having had three of his films nominated for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category.

Having previously worked behind-the-scenes for notable France television stations, Bouchareb began making films in the late 70s and released his first feature film, Bâton Rouge, in 1985.

A little over a decade later, in 1996, Bouchareb received his first Academy Award nomination for his film Poussières de vie (Dust of Life) which was submitted into this category on behalf of Algeria.

Again, another ten years passed before he received his second nomination for the same category with his Cannes Award-winning drama Indigènes (Days of Glory) which can be seen here in full.

His most recent film to receive an Oscar nomination was his 2010 drama
Hors-la-loi (Outside the Law).
