Sinopsis

Tunis “observed” through the surprising filter of a blank sheet of paper placed just a few centimetres from the lens, whose shape changes in colour with the vibration of the wind and the sun light and covers the vision, hiding the external image, but not its sound. Guided by intuition, the camera becomes the main attraction for passers-by, children and the local authorities. “Why are you filming like that? What is the message?” a passer-by asks. “I don’t think there is one”, replies the filmmaker, who hands over a risky slide that best reflects the reality and the turbulent social context of his country paradoxically by hiding it. Risk and luck to “show” a stroll through today’s Tunis with its fears and dreams in the foreground.
