IFI SCHOOLS: MY REVOLUTION (Ma révolution)

Ramzi Ben Sliman

Ma révolution

Recommended age 15+

The Arab Spring of 2011 was sparked by the Jasmine Revolution of Tunisia. In Paris, people take to the streets in support, but 14-year-old Marwenn, though of Tunisian background, has no interest in politics. Then he stumbles upon a rally, gets his picture in the paper and suddenly he’s the coolest kid in school. Encouraged by his irascible grandfather, Marwenn travels to Tunisia on a journey of self-discovery in this charming and humorous film.

Director: Ramzi Ben Sliman

France, 2016, Subtitled, Drama, 80 mins
