Under the Fig Trees

Join us for the next Ciné ONU

Discover the film "Under the Fig Trees" by Erige Sehiri.

Fidé, Sana, Melek, Meriem and other women are working on the fig harvest. In the shade of the trees, they talk about love and "mektoub"... A remarkably sensitive film, which describes the strength of women and a changing society as close to reality as possible.

This feature film was selected for the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes and the Oscars.
