Four Daughters

OSCAR NOMINEE, BEST DOCUMENTARY! One of the year's most acclaimed releases, this riveting documentary by filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania (The Man Who Sold His Skin) uses an audacious conceit to tell the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters.

Attempting to answer the question of how and why the Tunisian woman’s two eldest daughters were radicalized, Ben Hania reveals a complex history. We watch as the family relives key events in their lives with help from professional actors standing in for the missing girls.

Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Cannes Film Festival, Best Documentary Feature at the Gotham Awards, and Best Writing at the IDA Documentary Awards, FOUR DAUGHTERS is a compelling portrait of five women and a unique and ambitious work of nonfiction cinema that pushes against the conventional boundaries of the documentary form to explore the nature of memory, rebellion, and the ties that bind mothers and daughters.
