About The Event
The British Tunisian Society is proud to present the first in a series of 'Tunisian Encounters’-film & cultural events marking 65 years since Tunisian Independence organised in partnership with the Institut français du Royaume-Uni.
On Thursday 18 March at 1930, we will present the film Noura Reve, written and directed by Hinde Boujemaa and featuring an award winning central female performance by Hind Sabry. An independent woman, Noura is raising her three children alone, working in a hospital laundry to make ends meet. While her husband Jamel is back in jail, she meets Lassad, the love of her life. Forced to hide their relationship – if it were discovered, they would face 5 years in prison – Noura petitions for divorce but just days before it is granted, the lovers’ dream of a life together is threatened by Jamel’s imminent release.
After the screening, watch an exclusive Q&A with director Hinde Boujemaa and chaired by writer and editor Malu Halasa.
