      CMES Fall 2019 Film Series Screening – 'A Revolution in Four Seasons'

      The University of Arizona's Center for Middle Eastern Studies presents its fall 2019 film series, themed "On the Job." The film "A Revolution in Four Seasons" will be presented by Alainna Liloia, Ph.D. student in the University of Arizona's School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies.

      About the film, from Nonfics by Joshua Eisen:

      "The film tells the story of post-revolution Tunisia through the lives of two young women, journalist Emna Ben Jemma and Constituent Assembly member Jawhara Ettis. While Emna, a self-described 'blogger of the revolution,' dreams of a secular Tunisia in the image of western democracies like Sweden or France, Jawhara works with the Islamist Ennahada party to create a country that is both democratic and true to its Muslim roots. While they occupy radically different points on the political spectrum, both women are passionate about their country and determined to transform it into a functional democracy. Though the two women never meet on screen, Deeter uses the tension between them to explore broader fissures in post-revolution Tunisian society."
