10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You


Sami Belhaj



As a director, Sami Belhaj, born in 1992, has already produced feature, experimental and documentary films (Je suis sourd, Du sang sous les ailes de pigeons, Touness ya touness). He has also written a number of screenplays, for example Spirit and Le Couloir. The most fascinating part of cultural management for him is organization, or “behind the scenes of culture.” Sami Belhaj wants to use the course to acquire knowledge and skills to be able to better conduct and manage future projects. He plans to establish a cultural association on the Kerkennah Islands that would invigorate the cultural scene of the region with clubs and encounters and also offer training programmes for socially disadvantaged youth.

Kherta is a word that comes from the oral tradition of sailors from the island of Kerkennah, in Tunisia. Which means, the knot. The knot that represents a prison-like space and time.





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
