In the Maghreb, feature filmmaking began in Algeria in 1965 with Ahmed Rachedi’s masterly documentary Dawn of the Damned/L’Aube des damnés, which was quickly followed by eight fictional features in the 1960s, among them Mohamed Lakhdar Hamina’s The Wind from the Aurès/Le Vent des Aurès (1966). Tunisian cinema was inaugurated by Omar Khlifi with the appropriately named The Dawn/L’Aube (1966), and three further Tunisian features were made in the late 1960s. Morocco followed with three features – all produced by the state film organization, the CCM – in 1968–9.
