The Fight: Tunisia's Battle for Democracy
A new documentary film by Indispensable and DEC Proejcts
For thirty years, dictator Zinedine Abedine Ben Ali ruled Tunisia with an iron fist. Then in 2010, a fruit seller in southern Tunisia had enough. He lit himself on fire in protest. His act started a revolution in Tunisia.
It spread...to Egypt. To Libya. To Syria.
But eight years later, revolutions have been crushed all across the Middle East, except in one place: Tunisia.
Tunisia wrote a new Constitution, held free elections, and won the Nobel Prize for embracing democracy.
Then terrorist attacks and decades of cronyism lead to economic disaster: So what good is choosing your leaders if you’re struggling to make ends meet?
This is The Fight. Tunisia's Battle for Democracy.
