2011. Switzerland/Tunisia. Directed by Elyes Baccar. The so-called Arab Spring erupted in Tunisia, by all appearances a quiet and stable nation. Yet on December 17, 2011, a young man set himself on fire to protest oppression, and images of his burnt body opened the eyes of an entire nation. Rouge Parole is the story of a popular revolution, told through both the silence and the clamor of its heroes. 94 min.
