Film Synopsis: A Revolution in Four Seasons

Director: Jessie Deeter | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2016 | Length: 90 min
Language: Arabic with English subtitles | Age: 8+ years

Four years in the parallel lives of two Tunisian women, a liberal blogger and an Islamist politician, as they seek to shape their country’s nascent democracy in the post-revolution years.

Journalist Emna Ben Jemaa envisions a country governed by free speech and political accountability. Jawhara Ettis, seeking election as a representative of Islamist party Ennahda, longs for a Tunisian constitution firmly embedded in Islamic principles.

In a country struggling to define itself, both grapple with how women are treated in their society – and face difficult choices of their own in balancing work, motherhood, religion and politics. Through their intertwined stories, A Revolution in Four Seasons captures their remarkable determination.
