Recommend this film

Viva Paradis captures a moment in a land, Tunisia, in the midst of transformation; from an abandoned luxury hotel and the ruins of Carthage to the traces of the recent revolution. The fight has been fought, but how to proceed further now? Viva Paradis focuses on the moment after the journalists have left and the overflow of media images has stopped. When the country has lost its news value and the attention has moved on to neighbouring countries where heavy(ier) fights are taking place. It’s also the moment for Tunisians to catch their breath and await the reforms that they have fought for. Everything seems to stand still. At the same time, the first tourists return, in search for the sun, as in the Tunisia of yesterday. Viva Paradis portrays the tension between revolution and tourism, change and conservatism, between the heaviness and lightness of being. Bienvenue à la nouvelle Tunésie ! Welcome to the new Tunisia !
