Les Filles d'Olfa (Quattro figlie)

by Kaouther Ben Hania

Beyond Fiction

Doc, Italian Premiere

(Germany, France, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Cyprus / 2023 / 110’)


The life of Olfa, a Tunisian woman and mother of four daughters, oscillates between shadow and light. One day, her two eldest daughters disappear. To fill their absence, director Kaouther Ben Hania summons professional actresses and enacts an offbeat cinematic device with the intention of revealing the story of Olfa and her daughters. An intimate journey of hope, rebellion, violence, generational transition and sisterhood that will challenge the very foundation of our societies.
