The Silences of the Palace

1994, Drama
Set in 1960s Tunisia as the country is emerging from the yoke of colonialism, this film focuses on Alia (Ghalia Lacroix), a singer who visits the palace where her mother, Khedija (Amel Hedhili), was once employed. The journey triggers unpleasant recollections about the way her mother was treated by male members of the privileged class. In a series of flashbacks, Alia looks back on her adolescent self (Hend Sabri) and begins to piece together key details about her murky family history.
