Fatma 75 | DIVE IN Cinema Film

Selma Baccar | Tunisia 1976 | 1h | Arabic with English subtitles | 12 | DCP


Fatma 75 is a pioneering film: it is the first non-fiction film by a Tunisian woman, a feminist essay-film, and the first in a series of powerful films about strong female figures in the country. The film was made in the UN International Women's Year, 1975, and has long been recognised as one of the most important films from North Africa.

The film was restored in 2017 by the Africa’s Lost Classics project initiated by Africa in Motion and University of Glasgow, funded through an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant.

This screening is programmed by Africa in Motion for DIVE IN Cinema and is available to view online for 48 hours from 10.00 on Tuesday 21 July here: https://glasgowshort.org/shows/fatma-75
