Four Daughters (New York)
Join us on Wednesday November 15th at Nitehawk Williamsburg in Brooklyn for a special one night screening of award-winning director Kaouther Ben Hania’s FOUR DAUGHTERS.
This event is presented by The Future of Film is Female.
Yasmina Tawil, AFMI’s Director of Film Programming will introduce the film.
FOUR DAUGHTERS is the winner of four prizes including L’Oeil d’Or (Best Documentary) at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and will represent Tunisia as its selection for Best International Film for the Academy Awards.
This riveting exploration of rebellion, memory, and sisterhood reconstructs the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters, unpacking a complex family history through intimate interviews and performance to examine how the Tunisian woman’s two eldest were radicalized by Islamic extremists. Casting professional actresses as the missing daughters, along with acclaimed Egyptian-Tunisian actress Hend Sabri as Olfa, award-winning director Kaouther Ben Hania (The Man Who Sold His Skin) restages pivotal moments in the family’s life. These scenes are interwoven with confessions and reflections from Olfa and her younger daughters, offering the women agency to tell their own story and capturing moments of joy, loss, violence, and heartache.
Don’t miss the new film by AFF alumna Kaouther Ben Hania.
