As I Open My Eyes

As I Open My Eyes


Leyla Bouzid’s impressive debut feature is a tale of rebellious youth and rock ‘n’ roll set in the months leading up to the Tunisian Revolution in 2010. The film follows Farah, a female graduate who sings in a political rock band against the will of her mother, who knows the dangers of being outspoken in Tunisia all too well. Taking place at the dawn of the Arab Spring, this is a powerful coming-of-age story which is also about the awakening of a nation. Farah’s fantastic music fuses traditional Arab Mezwed with political and social messages, but it isn’t long before her music is noticed by the wrong sort of people.The screening on Wed 16 Nov at 18:15 is a special LUX Prize Event for LIFF30 Passholders only.
