„All leaders of the country, those who have studied in the West as well as their successors, have promised us much, so much more than we can remember. But they have kept only one promise: to control and punish us. And they are doing that right now.“ (The citizens of Sidi Bouzid)
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
The film is a matter close to the hearts of Ayten Mutlu Saray and Ridha Tlili. They want to bring a new aesthetical variation of the historically based and often discussed journalistic theme to the screen.
The film is the result of two years of work during which time the authors observed, held conversations and carried out research. In the film, Sidi Bouzid is an independent region. This independence also necessitates independent authors and production. That is why the authors are working together in a small team.
