Hassen Ferhani was born in Algiers in 1986. In 2006, he directed his first film Les Baies d’Alger. He took part in l’Université d’été at La Fémis and co-directed Afric Hotel (2011). Later on, he made Tarzan, Don Quichotte et nous (2013), which was presented at Visions du Réel, FIDMarseille and Locarno, and which had already reflected his interest in documentary bordering on fiction. Roundabout in My Head (2015), shot in slaugtherhouses in Algiers, was his first feature.
