FOCUS ON TUNISIAN CINEMA
BEAUTY AND THE DOGS - OF SKIN AND MEN
BEAUTY AND THE DOGS by Kaouther Ben Hania, a surprising discovery at this year’s Cannes (Un Certain Regard), is a courageous film about the struggle of a Tunisian rape victim to maintain her dignity and obtain justice despite threats and intimidation. The star of this feminist thriller, Mariam Al Farjani, is a revelation. It’s an amazing film!

Mehdi Ben Attia’s OF SKIN AND MEN is a more intimate and sensual film – it follows a photographer (Hafzia Herzi, LA GRAINE ET LE MULET) who re-constructs her life through her provocative photographs of young “men of the street” in the Tunis of today.
