Films on the Green 2015 presents the franco-tunisian movie Goha in Riverside Park Pier I on July 10.

"Goha" was the first film shot and produced in independent Tunisia, and marked Baratier’s dazzling feature debut. Featuring a screenplay by the French-Lebanese poet Georges Schehadé, the film won the Prix International at Cannes in 1958 and counted Jean-Luc Godard among its admirers. - To Save and Project, MoMA

"It featured the 20-year-old Tunisian-born beauty Claudia Cardinale in her screen debut and starred a handsome 25-year-old Egyptian actor billed as Omar Chérif (later Sharif), in the role that launched his international career and eventually caught the attention of the producers of Lawrence of Arabia. The film's screenplay was the only one written by the celebrated Egyptian-born playwright and poet Georges Schehadé, and it featured the first screen score by the Moroccan-born composer Maurice Ohana." - The Guardian
