Neither Allah, Nor Master!

OT: Laïcité, incha'Allah

Nadia El Fani // France, Tunisia, 2011
Documentary Feature // FF2011



August 2010: Tunisia is still under Ben Ali’s régime. Despite censorship, Nadia El Fani films a country which seems liberal towards Islam… Three months later, the Tunisian Revolution breaks out, Nadia is out in the field. While the Arab World enters an era of radical change, Tunisia, which initiated the wind of revolt, is once again a “laboratory country” for its outlook on religion. And what if, by the will of the people, a Muslim country opted for a secular constitution? Then, Tunisians would really have made Revolution.


Nadia El Fani (*1960) is a French tunisian director and producer, who, with her films, often takes a stand towards controversial political topics. Neither Allah, nor Master! provoked heavy criticism in the Islamic world.
