About the Film

A riveting exploration of rebellion, memory, and sisterhood, Oscar-nominated director Kaouther Ben Hania's Four Daughters reconstructs the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters, unpacking a complex family history to examine how the Tunisian woman’s two eldest daughters were radicalized — by watching the family relive key events in their lives alongside actors standing in for the missing girls.

Winner of four prizes including L’Oeil d'Or (Best Documentary) when it screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Four Daughters is a compelling portrait of five women and a unique and ambitious work of nonfiction cinema that explores the nature of memory, the weight of inherited trauma, and the ties that bind mothers and daughters.

From extraordinary international cinema to Hollywood’s latest; must-see American indies to groundbreaking documentaries, big screen experiences daily at The Main Cinema, your neighborhood nonprofit movie theater.
