Four Daughters - a film by Kaouther Ben Hania

Four Daughters (Detroit)

TUNISIA’S SUBMISSION FOR BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM • 2024 ACADEMY AWARDS®

This riveting exploration of family, history, and tragedy goes deep into the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters, unpacking a complex family dynamic through interviews and performance to examine how the Tunisian woman’s two eldest—teenagers at the time—were radicalized by extremists and became members of ISIS.

Casting professional actors as the missing daughters and acclaimed Egyptian-Tunisian actor Hend Sabri as Olfa, Four Daughters mixes interviews with the family alongside reenactments of pivotal moments, and ultimately gives the women agency over their own rich, complex family story. Winner of Best Documentary at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, this compelling nonfiction work explores the complex ties that bind mothers and daughters.

In Arabic and French with English subtitles. (107 min.)
