To earn her living, Rebeh, an old woman, drags her tired body around, carrying the burden of thousands of empty plastic bottles that she picks up from the streets. This films marks the first steps of a promising documentary director. In this very short documentary, Karim Souaki, a self-taught director, shows his intuitive ability to find the right distance to film the voice of a courageous woman struggling against poverty and marginalization. The images are rough but eloquent and the portrait is convincing beyond its pathos.
Born in 1977, Karim Souaki had his professional beginnings in the FTCA (Fédération Tunisienne des Cinéastes Amateurs). He has already directed three documentaries: Qui aime la vie aime le cinéma in 2004, Histoire d’une femme in 2005, and Silence in 2008. Silence
