The Challat of Tunis

Le challat de Tunis

Directed by Kaouther Ben Hania
Tunisia, France, 2013


Tunisia, before the revolution. A man on a motorbike, razor blade in hand, prowls the streets of Tunis slashing women’s buttocks. They call him Challat, aka “The Blade”, and the mere mention of his name provokes fascination and terror.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
