With director Kaouther Ben Hania in person
Dir. Kaouther Ben Hania. 2023, 117 mins. France/Tunisia/Germany. DCP. This riveting documentary, nominated for this year’s Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, uses an audacious formal conceit to tell the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters. Attempting to understand how and why the Tunisian woman’s two eldest were radicalized, Ben Hania reveals a complex history. We watch as the family relives key life events with help from professional actors standing in for the missing girls. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Cannes Film Festival, Best Documentary Feature at the Gotham Awards, and Best Writing at the IDA Documentary Awards, Four Daughters is a compelling portrait of five women and a unique and ambitious work of nonfiction cinema that pushes against the conventional boundaries of the documentary form to explore the nature of memory, rebellion, and the ties that bind mothers and daughters. A Kino Lorber Release.
