Winner of Muhr Arab / Documentary /Muhr Arab Documentary – Special Mention: Mourad Ben Cheikh (Director)


Tunisia’s revolution through the eyes of Lina Ben Mhenni, a blogger, who dared defy Ben Ali’s regime by blogging about the revolt; Radhia Nasraoui, a lawyer and fierce human rights advocate, who paid dearly for her activism, as did her husband who was often imprisoned and Karem Cherif, a journalist/writer armed with a bat and supported by his family to protect his neighbourhood during the dark days that followed Ben Ali’s departure… One common denominator in all their stories: the fear of tyranny as felt by all Tunisians. Today, however, a unanimous outcry: no more fear.
