TURBULENCE is the sixth collaboration between award-winning editor Nadia Ben Rachid and filmmaker Anne Aghion. Their work together has included the four films of the acclaimed GACACA SERIES, which culminated in the feature MY NEIGHBOR MY KILLER, and ICE PEOPLE.

Likewise, Nadia Ben Rachid has had long working relationships with a roster of ground-breaking directors, among them Yamina Benguigui, Michka Saal and Jero Yun. She has edited seven films for the iconic Abderrahmane Sissako, including the multiple-award winner BAMAKO (2006) and the Academy-Award-nominee TIMBUKTU (2014) for which Nadia Ben Rachid won the César for Best Editing. She has just completed Sissako’s latest film, BLACK TEA (previously announced as THE PERFUMED HILL).

She began honing her craft as an assistant editor on Roman Polanski’s films, PIRATES, BITTER MOON, and FRANTIC. By the late 1990s Nadia Ben Rachid was in the editor’s chair, and since then has cut some seventy films, both narrative and documentary, and is in high demand as a consulting editor. Additionally, Nadia Ben Rachid works in television, with recent credits including the 14 episodes of the series KINGDOMS OF FIRE directed by Peter Webber (GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING). A frequent jurist on the international festival circuit, she was recently on panels for the Excellence Awards of the European Film Academy, the International Festival of Clermont-Ferrand, the Carthage Film Festival, the Atlas Workshops of the Marrakech International Film Festival, and was on the 2023 jury of the Montpellier Mediterranean Film Festival’s Cinemed section.

In 2015, Nadia Ben Rachid became a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
