As I Open My Eyes (À peine j’ouvre les yeux)  Leyla Bouzid, 2015, 102 min. Arabic with English subtitles

RSVP HERE to receive a link to watch the film.

As I Open My Eyes depicts the clash between culture and family as seen through the eyes of a young Tunisian woman balancing the traditional expectations of her family with her creative life as the singer in a politically charged rock band. Director Leyla Bouzid’s musical feature debut offers a nuanced portrait of the individual implications of the incipient Arab Spring.
