Article

The film director Kalthoum Bornaz was born in Tunis in 1945, studied at the Institut des Hautes Études Cinématographique in Paris then went back to Tunisia and worked there as a cutter and director´s assistant on many international short and full length feature films. In 1984 she made a short film of her own, ´Fertile Colours´, which was followed in 1987 by ´Trois Personnages´ and in 1992 by ´Regard de Moutte´. With ´Keswa, le Fil perdu´, which she produced in 1997 and which won prizes at various festivals, she wanted above all ´to dissolve the monolithic stereotypes about the ever-passive sacrificial role of Arab Muslim women´.
