Beauty and the Dogs

By Kaouther Ben Hania
2017 - Tunisia / France - 100 min

In Arabic with English subtitles.

At a student party, Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, catches the eye of Youssef. A few hours later, she wanders the streets in a state of shock. It's the beginning of a long night during which she will have to fight for her rights and dignity to be respected. But how can justice be done when the perpetrators themselves are the arbiters of justice?

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Hisham Ben Khamsa, expert in Tunisian cinema - festival Journées Cinématographiques de Carthage, moderated by Leïla Chennoufi, co-founder of the Tunisian cultural association Shakshuka.

The evening will conclude with a tasting of Tunisian delicacies.
