Moufida Tlatli – Tunisia – 2000


CHF 15.90 / EUR 14.80

Aicha married Said when she was eighteen years old. The same fate awaited her that has awaited so many other Tunisian women: living at her mother-in-law’s house with her sisters-in-law. Her husband has left to work in Tunis and he and many other husbands only return for a month each year «the season of men.» Aicha, dissatisfied by the incessant waiting while in eternal disharmony with her mother-in-law, decides to set out for Tunis to be with Said. But he will only allow her to come on the condition that she first bear him a son. She eventually does so and goes to Tunis. But the son is autistic and Said’s disappointment prevents the situation from being resolved as Aicha long expected it would. Feeling despair once again, she and her two older daughters return to the family house in Djerba. There they seek to find a way to live and love according to their imaginations and not according to conventions dictated by traditional society.
