    I feel more attracted to a cinema that is sometimes called a cinema of the “margin”. It’s a cinema that is experimenting all the time, a very lively cinema that keeps moving, mutating, connecting elsewhere.

    Ala Eddine Slim is a Tunisian filmmaker. He has directed several short films, art videos and feature films, selected and multi-awarded in many international film festivals: Clermont-Ferrand, Grand Prix FID Marseille for BABYLON (2012), Lion of the Future, Best Technical Contribution at the Venice Film Festival in 2016, and Tanit d’Or at JCC for THE LAST OF US (2016).
    TLAMESS (2019), his second fiction film, had its world premiere at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs.
