FRANCOPHONE FILM SERIES: Ramzi Ben Sliman's MA RÉVOLUTION

  • Bullock State History Museum 1800 Congress Avenue Austin Tx 78701 United States (map)

Marwann is too preoccupied with adolescence to take interest in the Arab Spring demonstrations taking place throughout Paris. When Marwann stumbles into a street rally and has his picture taken by a journalist, he lands on the cover of the biggest newspaper in France and accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring. Marwann is instantly branded as a hero and the cool kid at his school. To win over a crush, Marwann embraces his new identity, only to find himself on a journey of connection to his roots.
