Le challat de Tunis

Tunisie, avant la révolution. Un homme à moto, armé d’un rasoir, balafre les fesses des femmes qui arpentent les trottoirs de Tunis. On l’appelle le Challat, “la lame”. Fait divers, rumeur ou mise en scène politique, d’un quartier à l’autre, tout le monde en parle, mais personne ne l’a jamais vu. Dix ans plus tard, alors qu’avec le Printemps Arabe les langues se délient, une jeune réalisatrice obstinée enquête pour élucider le mystère du Challat de Tunis. More

Bab'Aziz - Le prince qui contemplait son âme (Flyer)

Bab'Aziz - Le prince qui contemplait son âme

A visual poem of incomparable beauty, this masterpiece from director Nacer Khemir (Wanderers of the Desert) begins with the story of a blind dervish named Bab’Aziz and his spirited granddaughter, Ishtar. Together they wander the desert in search of a great reunion of dervishes that takes place just once every thirty years. With faith as their only guide, the two journey for days through the expansive, barren landscape. To keep Ishtar entertained, Bab’Aziz relays the ancient tale of a prince who relinquished his realm in order to remain next to a small pool in the desert, staring into its depths while contemplating his soul.

The news that Prince Sid'Ali has died suddenly confronts 25-year-old Ali with her past again. During the funeral she visits the palace where she spent her childhood and adolescence and where her mother was a servant. She never knew her father - he may even have been the prince. As she wanders the deserted corridors, the images of her youth return, such as her forbidden friendship with Sarra, daughter of one of the princes, who taught Alia to love the lute. She also re-experiences the painful and silent quest for the identity of her father and remembers her mother, the brave and beautiful Khedija, who protected Alia against the furtive desires of the prince.
