Nadia El Fani - Tunisia


I have always considered that my films are focused on this single topic: freedom. During the shooting of «Laïcité Inch'Allah», I had no other choice than affronting Islamic fundamentalists: it was like a "war"! At the same time I discovered the corridors of Tenon Hospital in Paris. I had to face cancer, a second enemy.
