In LES PASTÈQUES DU CHEIKH, a mocking satirical comedy from Tunisia, an act of piety becomes a respected imam’s downfall thanks to two crafty street kids. A humorous look at this year’s festival theme that explores fundamentalism of all shades in all African countries and the consequences of the conflicts it provokes.
