Challat of Tunis - Feature Documentary
Category: Arab Documentary Film Program
Challat of Tunis is a documentary/mockumentary that revisits the legend surrounding Challatt, a moped rider who prowled the streets of Tunis in 2003, razorblade in hand, slashing the buttocks of women. The specter of Challatt –– an oral distortion of Gillette, the famous razor blade brand –– temporarily changed the dress code of Tunisian women, who didn’t dare venture out in tight jeans or short skirts. Sidewalks were deserted and the mere sound of a moped provoked unrest. Challatt became a mysterious figure fueling both passions and tensions; a myth that evoked fascination, fantasy and terror.
