Aala Kaf Ifrit (Beauty And The Dogs)
A critical smash at Cannes this year, where it was screened to acclaim in the Un Certain Regard section, this is a gripping moral conundrum featuring two young Tunisians. During a student party, Mariam meets the mysterious Youssef and leaves with him. And so begins an epic journey to the end of the night, during which she'll have to fight for her rights and her dignity. But how can justice be dispensed when she has to assert her innocence in the face of her tormentors?
