DO FLOWERS BLOOM AFTER THE SPRING?

هل تستيقظ الزهور في غير الربيع؟

Tunis’ abandoned structures are part of the urban fabric, like ghosts from the past they demand to be heard – promising memories desperately needed for this generation to reconstruct its future from the rubble. Although Tunisia has been hailed triumphant in bringing down an oppressive regime in 2011, the alienation of an entire generation is more palpable than ever. Why is it that some monuments and buildings are reckoned as heritage and others of similar importance are left abandoned and in ruins, and who decides? Through experiencing the memory of abandoned spaces told through a building inhabited by books, the film exposes the soul of the city, and a historical narrative that is often left omitted.
