Zaineb Takrahou Ethalj (Zaineb Hates The Snow)


2009. Tunisian nine-year-old Zaineb and her mother will rebuild their lives in Canada with a man she was in love with before she married Zaineb’s father, who died in an accident. Zaineb is told that once she is in Canada, she can finally see the snow! But she wants nothing to do with this new country, because Zaineb has decided to hate the snow. Covering six years in the life of a charismatic young Tunisian girl and her changing family life, ZAINEB HATES THE SNOW is a beautiful and poignant coming-of-age documentary told through the eyes of a wide-eyed little émigrée.

2016 / 95 mins
