Documentary festivals flourish. For the 4th time ”Doc a Tunis” takes place, April 1st to 5th. A lot of films are shown from the host country, and from Marocco, Algeria and Libanon, and from Syria comes the film ”Dolls. A Woman in Damascus” by Diana el Jeiroudi, one of the organisers of the festival DoxBox in Damascus, written about on this site. The French influence is clear in the selection, focus is on the auteur tradition, nothing wrong in this, absolutely not. And another tribute to the festival for inviting Ferenc Moldovanyi to come to Tunis to present his film, ”Another Planet” which includes, among many qualities, a masterly done piece of cinematography. Moldovanyi will do a ”lecon du cinema” at the festival.
