Following the film is there will be a Q&A with Lilia Weslaty and Hassouna Mansouri.

Lilia Weslaty is the Tunisian activist from the documentary Zero Silence. She grew up in Tunisia in what she describes as an ‘apolitical’ family that did not dare to speak out against the regime. She has been an active cyber-blogger since 2008, posting (anonymous) short films on the internet about Tunisians who are subjected to torture.

 

Tunisian-Dutch film critic and writer Hassouna Mansouri studied French literature and philosophy in France and spent years as a lecturer teaching literature and cinema. He has published articles on such well-known cinematographers as Pasolini, Truffaut, Fassbinder and Sembene.
