No More Fear

A film by Mourad Ben Cheikh

2011 - Tunisia - Documentary - 1.85 DCP - 74 min.

After the self-immolation of a street seller, the people of Tunisia started a revolution that would give an end to 24 years of dictatorship of President Ben Ali and gave birth to the Arab Spring Revolutions. It was not a Jasmine revolution as Jasmine does not result in death - rather the cry of despair rising from a generation of graduates. We shall never again have any fear for this new Tunisia. This film is a testimony and a tribute to the people of Tunisia.
