FULL DESCRIPTION

As Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution draws near, independent young woman Farrah struggles against her controlling family and repressive society to pursue her dream of being in a band. Set in the rarely-depicted underbelly of Tunisa, this coming of age tale captures the tensions and triumphs of what it means to be a young woman fighting for freedoms on the fringes of a conservative Islamic society. Featuring moving compositions by Iraqi musician Khyam Allami, Leyla Bouzid's feature-length is a poignant human story that hints at a much bigger picture.
