Biography
He was born in 1945 in Sfax,Tunisia. He studied Cinema at the INSAS in Brussels from 1968 to 1972, and made a short film, Duel. He also worked on André Delvaux’s Rendezvous à Bray. His film career was interrupted when he was imprisoned from 1973 through 1979, for his membership in GEAST (Groupe d’Etudes et d’Action Socialiste Tunisien). In 1992, France made him a Knight of Arts and Letters, and six years later he won the Presidential Prize of the Cinema in Tunisia. He now teaches at a cinema school, the EDAC, which he founded in 1994. He also writes poetry and has published a poetry collection, Sinners.

Contemporary Wars

Making of / Nouri Bouzid

Bahta, 25, heads up a group of break dancers in Tunisia, but after the eruption of hostilities in Iraq in 2003, he falls in with a group of fundamentalists, whose brainwashing is intended to make him a suicide bomber. In the framing story, the actor playing Bahta doesn’t know how the film will end, and he and the director have conflicts of their own.
