Film Series: As I Open My Eyes

2015. Tunisia. Dir: Leyla Bouzid. With Baya Medhaffer. 102 min.


On the brink of the Arab Spring, young Farah’s punk rock band seems to be her only escape from the tensions that dominate all facets of her life. With the Tunis underground arts and activism scene as her stage, Bouzid delivers a tender and powerful look at Arab girlhood in the face of overwhelming familial, societal, and even governmental upheaval.
