Tunisian director Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud filled the theater on Monday and Tuesday at the filming days in Cartagena during the presentation of his film "Fatva", co-producers of the brothers Dardenne.
The twenty-ninth session of the Dais of Carthage (JCC) is held from Saturday to November in the heart of Tunisia's capital. Mahmoud Ben Mahmud has released his latest feature film, Fatva, a very realistic fantasy that sees spectators in the world of the Salafist mafia family. A couple with different convictions and a son killed by those who were accustomed to him fed a plate of stories.
Presented as the world premiere at the Gent Festival in October, the film now competes with CGC. Facing the incredible theme of religious extremism, he illustrates how difficult it is to overcome it. "This is especially related to the wolf wolf syndrome that, whatever we do, we run from cracks, like a woman who stretched out in Tunisia on October 29," says Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud.
"The fight against terrorism is the only field that really functions today in Tunisia, since the attack in 2015, the actors have been silenced, except in the maiksu on the Algerian border, where they occasionally let the pair on a policeman or a soldier." Yet, terrorism remains the nightmare of our democracies, the permanent sword of Damocles. We can not think of it … "
Mostly financed by the Tunisian funds, "Fatva" was completed in Belgium through the company Films du Fleuve des Dardenne. His cinema show is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019 in the Benelux countries. "I wanted to analyze the subject through the story and convey a message that no one should confiscate what it is," concludes Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud.
