Stories in Tunisia

 

Tunisia, as a Muslim country, is known to be moderate and geographically connecting eastern countries to European. Tunisia is also considered as the most progressive Arab country in women’s rights. However, in the eyes of Kaouther Ben Hania is still far from “progressive”. Through two of her films “Le Challat de Tunis” (2013) and “Beauty and the Dogs” (2017), she expressed her concern in the past five years about the city of Tunis and stories of its women. Moreover, this story has a broad meaning about where power and authority threaten individual rights even to the extent of terrorizing them.
