Khaled Ghorbal


Raped by her cousin at 17, country girl Fatma tells no one, keeping her pain inside. She binds her breasts as a sign of a beginning rejection of her sexuality. A fictional illustration of the position of women in today’s Tunisia, FATMA captures the wide range of attitudes towards female sexuality in one of the most liberal Arab societies. (Variety)
