In the wake of the uprisings of the Arab Spring, filmmakers Ayten Mutlu Saray and Ridha Tlili returned to the town where it all started, Sidi Bouzid, a town that three years later had decided to succeed from Tunisia altogether. Controlling and Punishment (2013) finds a city absent a central authority, but ripe with culture, ideology, and activism, one grappling with its past yet hopeful for its future. The Berkeley FILM Foundation presents this screening of the documentary at The New Parkway Theater and an after show Q&A with directors Saray and Tlili.
