OF SKIN AND MEN by Mehdi Ben Attias
Tunis, today. Amel (Hafsia Herzi), a young photographer, has just lost her husband Nabil in an accident. Her happiness, living with her beloved husband in a beautiful family apartment, h...as turned to grief. Her father-in-law, Taïeb, encourages her to re-engage herself in her photography and she begins shooting a series of erotic scenes of male. Amel truly immerses herself in her work – she’s fearless and unafraid of scandal and chooses to look at men in the same way as men look at women.
A close look at the war of sexes, gender relationship, men vs women, set in a now democratic country that still has to learn how to use freedom.
A delicious taster plate of Tunisian cuisine will be served prior to the show.Right before the screening a live concert by wonderful oud player Rihab Azar and after the screening a debate.
