UNICEF helped bankroll this 2000 documentary by Belkacem Hadjadj, which may explain both its good intentions and its pedestrian style. It profiles the only woman cabdriver in Sidi Bel-Abbes, a city in northwestern Algeria near the Mediterranean. Her male passengers are skeptical of her work, her female passengers supportive, but they all seem to understand why a widow with children would take over her late husband's taxi license. Hadjadj also includes women discussing the role of the veil in Arab society and visits a site outside town where a factory that employed women was torched by Islamic militants. In Arabic and French with subtitles. 52 min.
