In the Sacred Shade of the Trees
(A l'ombre sacrée des arbres)

by Fitouri BELHIBA

a l'ombre

A North-South dialogue between a Tunisian film-maker and a French ethnologist and writer about five symbolic trees of southern Tunisia: the olive tree, the fig tree, the palm tree and the ghardga. This is a travelogue through landscapes, working periods, festive occasions, meetings with the keepers of knowledge and tastes, including stopovers with story-tellers, healers, fine food experts and musicians. A tribute to trees to promote respect for their surroundings.
