“Upon The Shadow” de Nada Mezni Hafaiedh

Documentary. Released in France on April 10, 2019. Amina Sboui (ex-Femen) finds a daily newspaper in Tunis in the Sidi Abou Said district. In her house, she decides to welcome gays and transvestites, rejected by their relatives, humiliated by their neighbours and especially threatened by the police. Amina will – unintentionally – create a real refuge for Sandra, Ramy, Ayoub and Atef, and defend them as she did for women. It is through the daily lives of the inhabitants of this shelter – taken to heart by Nada Mezni Hafaiedh – that we plunge unfiltered into the deep distress of the LGBT community in Tunisia. A militant film and a punch.
