Les amoureux des bancs publics - A story of street, art and resistance

From the demonstrations of December 2010 an aesthetic and political genre, street-art, took possession of Tunisian streets and public space, by transforming it into a place where artistic and cultural creations take shape and spread a message that arrives directly to every citizen. Groups of writers, dance , theatre and cinema companies have transformed places, Medina and markets of Tunis and Tunisia in a new stage usable by everyone, in order to sensitize the civil society to art, meant as civic duty. By following the work of groups as Zwewla, Ghar-boys, Break Art Studio, Brotha from Another Motha Company, Danseurs-Citoyens, Art Solution and many others, the documentary analyzes a new way of active citizenship in post-revolutionary Tunisia and the impact that this one could have, in the current precarious context, on Tunisian civil society, and in particular on new generations, by diffusing an alternative culture to most radical movements of the country.

It is not an "entertaining" movie. It is a creation of a Masterpiece.

The show is well-written, futuristic, and nearly flawless. Give this film a chance, you'll be beyond thankful you did.
