Challat Tunes / Challat of Tunis
Zabaltegi
CHALLAT TUNES / CHALLAT OF TUNIS

Following its participation in the Cinema in Motion section of the San Sebastian Festival in 2012, this film by the director Kaouther Ben Hania competed at the Dubai Festival. A moped rider, razor blade in hand, prowls the streets of Tunis, slashing the sexiest female buttocks he can find. With irony, Challat Tunes / Challat of Tunis tells the intrigues behind a news story that has become an urban legend and portrays a Tunisian society in turmoil, where men are struggling to find their place and the women’s body is a political issue.

BIOGRAPHY

Tunisian director Kaouther Ben Hania studied Film in Tunisia (EDAC) and Paris (La Fémis and Sorbonne), where she has been living for six years. She has directed several short films, including Me, My Sister and the Thing (2006) and Wooden Hand (2013), long-travelled on the international festival circuit, and the documentary, Les imams vont à l'école (2010), premiered at the Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). Challat Tunes is her first full-length feature film; it was presented in the Cinema in Motion section of the San Sebastian Festival in 2012.
