“Darling, this is Younes. Yesterday he was my nephew, today he is our son.“

Younes' life is changed forever when his poverty-stricken parents surrender him to the care of his more affluent uncle. Re-named Jonas, he grows up in a colourful colonial Algerian town, and forges a unique friendship with a group of boys, an enduring bond that nothing – not even the Algerian Revolt – will shake. He meets Emilie – a beautiful, beguiling girl who captures the hearts of all who see her –
and an epic love story is set in motion.

Time and again Jonas is forced to to choose between two worlds: Algerian or European; past or present; love or loyalty, and finally decide if he will surrender to fate or take control of his own destiny at last.

What the Day Owes the Night is based on the eponymous novel by Mohammed Moulessehoul, formerly a high ranking officer in the Algerian army, who adopted a literary pseudonym Yasmina Khadra to avoid Algerian military censorship. He went to live in exile in France in 2000. The following year he published L'écrivain, an autobiographical novel, in which he reveals his true identity.

He is the author of The Attack, The Swallows of Kabul, In the Name of God, The Sirens of Baghdad and Wolf Dreams, among others. Yasmina Khadra is the recipient of the Grand Prix de Littérature the Henri Gal granted by the French Academy and the Légion d’honneur awarded by the Republic of France for his work as a novelist.

Based on the novel by Yasmina Khadra
directed by Alexandre Arcady, 2012

Keep exploring

Commander

Physical theatre performance and the audiovisual artwork starring child actors will be the culmination of Farm in the Cave’s artistic project Commander, which explores the online radicalization of children and youth.



Thin Skin

A performance by established circus acrobat Eliška Brtnická and her hypnotic production Thin Skin at the interface of movement installation and contemporary circus in the spaces of the DOX Centre.



The Pain of Others

How is it possible to mediate unimaginable suffering to those who have not experienced it themselves? The Pain of Others exhibition project aims to reflect on art’s ability to speak of war, violence, and conflict, and, more importantly, on our (in)ability to relate through art to the horrors of war and the pain of those affected by it.


Funny Games

The human body as the alpha and omega of the image. The exhibition Funny Games presents the work of the Moldovan painter, the essential figure painter Alexander Tinei. His individual works, both monumental and small formats, are fragments of a magnificent mosaic of human life.


Tmání (Darkening)

What goes on in the head of a young person who is experiencing depression? And is there a way to get out of these states? That's the story behind the autobiographical animated film Darkness, which uses virtual reality to depict authentic experiences.


#Datamaze: Hybrid Condition

Digital and algorithmic technologies have become a mundane, yet also nearly invisible part of our everyday existence. The next chapter of the #Datamaze exhibition explores hybridized realities, where physical and generated worlds merge into a flow of all-consuming and sometimes numbing, puzzling experiences.


Temple Builders

In the exhibition Temple Builders, the Peerless Cooperative of the Holy Nurture (JSD) will present the mainly cult and ritual side of its activities. Mister Miláček, the Young Saint, the cause and reason for the JSD, chaotic of the universe, has not only united the ununitable in unlimited syncretism, but also created countless new churches and religions.


Lost in...

The exhibition will present a cross-section of Vladimír Doležal's work. His painting and drawing work is combined with his experience as a restorer. A deep understanding of the meaning of the figurative image, i.e. the representation of archetypal phenomena of human existence, is decisive for Doležal's art.


Sumika

The dance company of award-winning Japanese choreographer and dancer Ruri Mito will present the Czech premiere of its delicate dance performance entitled Sumika. The Ruri Mito Dance Company will appear here as part of its European tour.
