London – Ciné Lumière

For her sixth feature Oscar-nominated Tunisian director Kaouther Ben Hania takes an unusual approach in examining a familial tragedy as a film within a film.

The docu-fiction hybrid examines the disappearance and radicalisation of two Tunisian girls, Rahma and Ghofrane, through both dramatic reenactments and interviews with the real-life subjects. Ben Hania also appears as herself, announcing to Olfa and her two youngest daughters, Aya and Tayssir, that the three of them would be playing themselves in a series of reproduced moments alongside actors hired to portray their missing siblings.

"Gripping true story... compelling and ambitious." - Variety
