Directed by Leyla Bouzid

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.


DVD Extras Include:

5.1 Surround

"Best fictional film yet about the Arab Spring." -Indiewire 

"Showcases a stand-out lead performance by first-timer Baya Medhaffar." -Variety
