Satin Rouge



Directed by: Raja Amari

(95 mins) A Tunisian widow takes an unlikely journey of self-discovery. While investigating a suspected liaison between her headstrong teenaged daughter and a cabaret musician, Lilia becomes drawn to an exhilarating nightclub netherworld of Rubenesque bell dancers and nocturnal pleasure-seekers. In trading her shapeless housedresses for sequins and satin, she begins to emerge from her cocoon of melancholy and loneliness.

In Arabic with English subtitles.
