Tradition jars with modernity in Leyla Bouzid’s debut feature As I Open My Eyes. This musically-charged French-Tunisian film, set at the dawn of the Arab Spring, follows a young woman as she navigates family, culture and social ideals in contemporary Tunis. For 18 year-old Farah, music transcends culture and language, and her passion for life and music conflict with her family’s hopes for her future. Her band—assembled of several friends and one more-than-a-friend—plays a blend of original music and covers at local bars including men’s-only joints. But her music too is wrapped up in the complex politics of the Tunisian Revolution and singing becomes the core of her civil resistance.

Director: Leyla Bouzid
