A man rushes through a Kafkaesque public administration in a hectic search for a document. Bureaucracy through the prism of genre film – this is the perspective of Majdi Lakhdar’s The File. The way the director has adapted the codes of burlesque to his own universe and the energy he has given to the montage make The File one of the most refreshing and innovative filmic propositions in the independent cinema scene of the last two years.
Majdi Lakhdar was born in Tunis in 1987. After obtaining his degree in scriptwriting and filmmaking from the Manouba Institute of Arts and Multimedia (ISAMM) in 2009, he directed two short films: The File and Big Heart Little Heart; both were awarded prizes at various festivals. Lakhdar appears as an actor in several short films and has also worked as a film critic for a Tunisian daily. He is a member of the European Cinema Days 2010 steering committee and of “L’Association du Court et du Documentaire Maghrébin.”
