Beauty and the dogs
When Mariam leaves a party, the mysterious Youssef leaves with her. They have just met, and Mariam does not know that this night will be very long. She will be forced to fight for her rights and dignity. But how can justice ever be skipped when its representative stands for the crime? In Kulturarbetaren Kajsa Olsson writes that; “Beauty and the dogs is a reality-based depiction of how patriarchal structures and corruption break up democracy. But it is also a strong story of the people who dare to challenge the power structures." The director, Kaouther Ben Hania was nominated in the category for young talent, innovative and bold works at Cannes Film Festival 2017.
