The Color of Phosphate

Ridha Tlili  |  AFAC Documentary Program  |  2018  |  Tunisia
Producer: Soumaya Bouallegui
Dust swallows the city. People float in a grey existence defined by the rhythms of the phosphate mine. In Redeyef, Babylon of Tunisia, beauty is an act of resistance. LAID, the clown and the mine worker, struggles against marginalisation and debasement through theatre, flowers, and a clown costume.
