Besbouss is the fictional account of a Tunisian forensic pathologist, Karim Djebara, tasked with an autopsy on the body of Mohamed Bouazizi, the young street vendor whose self-immolation launched the Arab Spring.

Charged by his government’s authorities with clearing them of any blame, Dr. Djebara must grapple with his country’s past, present and future as he decides whether to risk his own career by preserving the truth and dignity of the young deceased lying on the autopsy table before him.

Deadline to enter is Friday November 8, 2019
