Amongst Friend And Neighbours

Orphaned Aziza lives with her uncle and a cousin trying to make good in business. Her uncle's death confronts Aziza with the need for her independence, and she makes a move towards achieving just that, with the help of a neighbouring photonovel actress. Aziza is still one of the best and deepest female portraits of new Arab cinema, and the freeze frame bringing the movie to a close, synthesis of this difficult but determined acceptance of a new style of life, is equally as valid as the most fervent discourse dedicated to the question by Maghribian cinema.
Tunis, 1943. Studied Film at the IDHEC in Paris and began his professional career as a cameraman for the Actualités tunisiennes and as an assistant director on numerous foreign films shot in Tunisia. His first feature film is Une si simple histoire (1970), although his revelation came with Risala min Sejnan/Sejnane (1974). Aziza (1980) confirmed him as one of the best Tunisian moviemakers of the moment, but his career found no continuity and, after several years in production, he only finally succeeded in making Le chant de la noria in 2002.
