By exploring the parallel lives of three Tunisian women with intersecting lives, Swiss-Egyptian director Nadia Fares holds a mirror up to race, class, and gender in North Africa. Though specific in its setting and narrative, this film also functions as a larger allegory of how we are all beholden to gender expectations, even when we think we aren’t. The first feature for Fares, Honey and Ashes proved Fares is a fearless director with strong imagery and storytelling, and left audiences hungry for more.
