Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
Country: Tunisia, Belgium
Direction: Mouaad el Salem
Production: Mouaad el Salem, Nour Al Amal
A day that could also be a life. A young man who could also be an older woman. A nightmare that could also be a dream. In Tunisia, while it could also be somewhere else: This Day Won’t Last is a cooperation with a distance that lies on the border between the need and the fear of making a film, the need and the fear of the revolution. That is how this self portrait turns into a group portrait. Clandestine, but straight from the heart: an end that could also lead to a new beginning.
