COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Hédi Jouini, le chanteur le plus populaire de l’histoire tunisienne, continue d’inspirer les grands mouvements politiques de son pays. Pourtant, il n’a jamais souhaité révéler sa célébrité à sa famille. Ce documentaire nous propose de revenir sur les mystères de la vie de légende de celui qui fut père d’une nation à défaut d’être père de famille.

Hedi Jouini is the most popular musical star in Tunisian history, known as the “Frank Sinatra of Tunisia”. His songs continue to inspire revolutionaries and conservatives alike, striking at the heart of the post-colonial social and political upheaval of Tunisia and its continuing search for identity in the wake of the Arab Spring. But why did he keep his fame hidden from his family? What dark secrets did he keep from the nation that worshipped him? The Man Behind the Microphone reveals the incredible story behind a man and his music, and offers fascinating insight into Tunisia’s cultural evolution. The film builds a profound portrait of the godfather of Tunisian music – father to a nation yet not to his family.
