THE FIGHT: Tunisia’s Battle For Democracy
A Feature length documentary film about Tunisia’s tumultuous transition to democracy.
A FILM BY DANIEL DART & JIM ARKEDIS
THE STORY OF A NATION BORN AGAIN.
In 2011, a fruit seller in southern Tunisia lit himself on fire in a public market and started a revolution. Uprisings spread across the Middle East - to Egypt, Libya, Syria, and beyond - in what and became known as the Arab Spring.
Today, much of the Arab Spring's promise has turned to bitter disappointment. But in Tunisia, there’s hope. Tunisians held elections, wrote a new Constitution, and won the Nobel Peace Prize for embracing democracy. Though terrorism, a stagnant economy, foreign influence, long-standing inequality, and brain-drain threaten its democratic progress today, Tunisians continue to fight for their right to free expression. This is their story; this is their fight to be free.
