With his first feature film, selected at this year's Venice Mostra Critic's Week, Tunisian Abdelhamid Bouchnak will surely attract attention. Having learnt his craft through short films (Le Bonbon, Miroir, Alliance), television (the series Hedhoukom) and music videos, all which gave him an undeniable expertise he puts this to good use in this genre movie that could well become the flagship of a local new wave.
