Movie of the Day: Harka (2022) by Lotfy Nathan

After the unexpected death of his father, young Tunisian Ali (a remarkable Cannes winning performance by Adam Bessa) finds himself responsible for his two younger sisters as the threat of eviction hangs over them. Amid a climate of pervasive social inequality, corruption and injustice, Ali dreams of a better life in Europe but is forced to make a precarious living selling contraband gas at the local black market. What ensues is a formidable fight for dignity.Writer-director Lotfy Nathan’s profoundly powerful debut is a modern-day parable about resistance, based on the harrowing true story of Mohamed Bouazizi, whose self-immolation roused the Arab Spring. Awards 4 wins & 8 nominations.
