Documentary Feature | France/Tunisia/Germany/Saudi Arabia | 2023 | Arabic | 110 minutes

In this riveting exploration of rebellion, memory, and sisterhood, Academy Award®-nominated Tunisian director Kaouther Ben Hania reconstructs the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters, two of whom were radicalized by Islamic extremists. By casting professional actresses to play Olfa and the missing daughters, Ben Hania uses intimate interviews and artful reenactments to offer the women agency to tell their own story. Winner of four prizes, including Best Documentary, at Cannes, FOUR DAUGHTERS is a compelling portrait of five women, and a unique, ambitious work of nonfiction cinema that explores the weight of inherited trauma and the ties that bind mothers and daughters. A Kino Lorber Release. Tunisia's Academy Award® submission for Best International Feature.
