Event Originally produced by Oscilloscope Laboratories in 2017.
Summary When Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, is raped by police officers after leaving a party, she is propelled into a harrowing night in which she must fight for her rights even though justice lies on the side of her tormentors. Employing impressive cinematic techniques and anchored by a tour-de-force performance from newcomer Mariam Al Ferjani, BEAUTY AND THE DOGS tells an urgent, unapologetic, and important story head-on. A rare, startling film from a female Tunisian director, it’s a striking critique on a repressive society and a forcefully feminist rallying cry. Nominated for an Un Certain Regard Award at the **Cannes Film Festival.** Tunisia's official entry at the **Academy Awards.** *"A harrowing and necessary film in only nine shots." - Boyd van Hoeij, **The Hollywood Reporter***
