Bab’Aziz < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Tunesia 2005 • Directed by Nacer Khemir • Feature Film • 96 minutes

Two figures, lost in an ocean of sand. Ishtar, a lively little girl, and her grandfather Bab’Aziz, a blind dervish. Their goal is the great reunion of dervishes that takes place every thirty years. But to find out where it is held, one must have faith. One must listen to the infinite silence of the desert with one’s heart. As they cross the endless expanse of burning-freezing sand, they encounter other people. The desert is the dervish’s friend, however, and in due time it unlocks its secret to Bab’Aziz: the gathering place. During their journey Bab’Aziz relates fables that contain simple wisdom. What makes this film so special is it’s mythological quality of simple storytelling. It warms the heart.
