Aïda ouvre sa cantine, installe sa viande ainsi que son équipement de travail, la découpe, la désosse et attend sagement l’arrivée de ses clients, habituels ou inconnus. Ce métier est un héritage de sa famille. La vente de la viande est une activité pratiquée par les hommes, mais Aïda poursuit sans aucun mal les traces de ses parents, avec toute la force physique que cela demande.

To get the camera up close to Aïcha, Rakia Laminou first had to persuade this extraordinary female butcher to come on board her film project. The result gives us the image of Aïcha’s body and hands quietly at work, enveloping us in a rather curious time and place. This simple, straightforward film of few words fleshes out a world that is unusual, to say the least.
