Youssef Chebbi, Tunisia, France 2022, 92 Min., OV with English subs

Curated by ALFILM

The screening is introduced by Iskandar Abdallah

In the Gardens of Carthage, a new district where modern buildings are juxtaposed with abandoned sites and wasteland, the body of a caretaker is found burnt in the middle of a construction site. Batal (Mohamed Grayaâ) and Fatma (Fatma Oussaifi) oversee the investigation and begin by questioning the workers of the neighboring yards. The police quickly conclude suicide by immolation, a gesture of despair, but Batal and Fatma refute this thesis. A stunning thriller unfolding in post-revolutionary Tunis that summons the ghosts of the past, this award-winning film draws on the traditions of film noir through a virtuoso use of light and shadow.
