Feriel Ben Mahmoud grew up in Tunisia as the daughter to a Tunisian father and a French mother. She did her A-levels there before taking a degree in political science in France. She also studied at the “Ateliers Varan”, an education centre for documentary-makers from the Southern continents. The hands-on courses are the result of an initiative by Jean Rouch that promoted the education of African filmmakers, so that they themselves could document events in Africa instead of European directors. Feriel Ben Mahmoud made countless documentaries and news reportages for French television (France 5 and France 3) through the initiative, and in doing so looked closely into the current and historical social and political movements in the Arab World. Her chronicle of the Arab women’s movement LA RÉVOLUTION DES FEMMES: UN SIÈCLE DE FÉMINISME ARABE has already been shown and won awards at more than 20 festivals in Africa, Europe, Asia and America.
