Archival footage shot by an amateur filmmaker while visiting Algeria in 1975.
It contains stock footage of various locations in the rural part of the country, mostly in the Sahara Desert: the arrival at the airport, life in a small city (Touareg men walking in their typical clothes, cars parked in the street, people shopping, a crowd in an outdoor market), carvings on the rocks, people in a small village in the Sahara Desert, an oasis in the desert, and more.
