A Weekend Celebration of Tunisia

December 5, 2019 | Katelin Levy

As part of A Weekend Celebration of Tunisia, which will take place at the French Institute Alliance Française during December 6-7, visitors can screen two recent Tunisian movies:

Beauty and the Dogs © Oscilloscope (2018). Image courtesy of FIAF.

Beauty and the Dogs, directed by Kaouther Ben Hania, is “a striking critique on a repressive society and a forcefully feminist rallying cry.”

Dear Son © Luxbox (2019) Image courtesy of FIAF.

Dear Son is a “deeply moving drama about a father searching for his missing son” through which director Mohamed Ben Attia, who will participate in a post-screening Q&A, “explores generational gulfs and fraying family ties in contemporary Tunisia.”

Both screenings will take place on December 6 at FIAF Florence Gould Hall.
