Event Description:

Le Challat de Tunis/The Blade of Tunis (directed by Kaouther Ben Hania, Tunisia 2013)

A ‘playful,’ ‘audacious’ and celebrated mockumentary based on the true story of a vigilante motorcyclist infamous for slashing the buttocks of women he deemed improperly dressed. (Arabic and French with English subtitles, 100 minutes)


Nadi Cinema, the Middle East Film Club, screens films from across the Middle East and often beyond. All films – classics, cult favorites, recent hits, comedies, tragedies, political thrillers, social commentaries, and romances, in black-white and living color – are subtitled in English. Screenings are free and open to the public. The series is hosted by Joel Gordon, Professor of History, and generally meets bi-weekly. Come see movies the way they were filmed to be screened – in a dark theater with friends and strangers.

All screenings take place in the Hembree Auditorium, room 107E in the Agriculture, Food and Life Sciences building (AFLS), next to the Pat Walker Health Center on Maple Ave. Screenings begin at 7:00 pm and are free and open to the public.

For film synopses, trailers and more information follow the King Fahd Center on Facebook and Twitter.
