Directed by Leyla Bouzid
As I Open My Eyes
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.

"Best fictional film yet about the Arab Spring." -Indiewire
"Showcases a stand-out lead performance by first-timer Baya Medhaffar." -Variety
