Blue Beard Today's Tale
Poetic film combines: 1) A deep reflection of a French literary folktale, The Bluebeard, about a powerful man who kills the curious women who want to do the forbidden. I use its characters and events to reflect on the dictators behaviours towards the nation when they are rejected. 2) Poetic performance centered on a story of a mother and her child who were found alive under a destroyed building. The female in The Bluebeard story is a symbol for the nation. When the revolution took place, during the Arab uprising, it started with peaceful protesters; the respond was extremely violent from the regime part and people were killed on street, or after being arrested.
