Filmed after the Tunisian Revolution, Lettre à Mohamed is a poetic journey through a troubled country. Between dictatorship and first democratic elections, the film depicts a landscape of disillusionment, but also of humor and hope. It is a compilation of fragments surrounding the aftermath of a revolution, intercut with a letter about the personal impressions of the filmmaker’s journey. (Production note)
