Submitted by Tunisia as their official entry to the 96th Academy Awards, Four Daughters is a mesmerizing, formally ambitious documentary that bends the edges of narrative form in careful service to the stories of five brave, bold, and complicated women.
Between light and darkness stands Olfa, a Tunisian woman and the mother of four daughters. One day, her two older daughters disappear. Four Daughters unpacks a complex family history through intimate interviews and spellbinding reenactments to examine how the two eldest daughters were radicalized by Islamic extremists.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania invites professional actresses as the missing daughters, along with acclaimed Egyptian-Tunisian actress Hend Sabri as Olfa.
Four Daughters is a unique cinema experience that will lift the veil on Olfa and her daughters’ life stories. An intimate journey of hope, rebellion and sisterhood that will question the very foundations of our societies. (110 min)
