The Face of God  poster
A young man in his thirties, used by life and its deceptions, revisits his memories. He goes wayback to his childhood in a village of the North West of Tunisia in the mid-eighties, one of the poorest regions of the country. Over there, his grandmother used to tell him stories from forgotten times, his mother made bread at the break of dawn while the history of his country scrolled by on the TV screen: bread at the time became a stake for the people (bread riots 1983). The child grew up and the story moves on. As an adult, he leaves for the capital Tunis where he discovers a shining world full of mirages but also much darkness. The narrator moves between the different spaces, public spaces, spaces of exchange and creation, real or imaginary, which he tries to make his own in order to continue to tell his story. The triggering of popular movements which led to the revolution seem to suddenly interrupt this journey into time and memory giving a new meaning to the memories themselves .
