Youssef Chebbi | 2022 | 92′

In the Gardens of Carthage – an eerie, half-finished district of Tunis, initiated by the former Regime but where construction stopped at the beginning of the Revolution – two cops, Fatma and Batal, find a burnt body in one of the lots. As construction slowly resumes, they start looking into this mysterious case. When the event repeats itself, the investigation takes a puzzling turn.

Combining neo-noir, fantasy and crime drama, Youssef Chebbi’s debut feature presents a darker side of the Maghreb infused with post-Revolution politics.
