The director will be joining SAFAR curator Joseph Fahim for a Q&A after the screening on Friday 14 September @ 8:30pm.
Another fantastic new addition to the film programme is In the Land of Tararrani, adapted from the hugely popular and influential short story collection Sleepless Nights by master of the form Ali Douagi.
This anthology film – directed by Férid Boughedir, Hamouda Ben Halima and Hédi Ben Khalifa – comprises three of these stories set in the 1930s.
Rarely seen outside Tunisia, In the Land of Tararanni is among the handful of Tunisian literary adaptations made at the first creative peak of Tunisian cinema; an analytical look at a dysfunctional society that superbly balances bitterness and ire with charm and humour.
This 1973 classic will be screened at the ICA on Saturday 14 September @ 2pm. More info here.
