M'dina

"M'dina" is an experimental documentary that captures everyday scenery through the lens of a foreigner in the old city in Tunisia.
Life in this mystic place though it might seem exotic is a narrative as old as time: humans with their hopes and dreams navigating through the journey of existence. With unedited sounds, this work is a sensory experience to be savoured loudly and brightly.
