When Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, is raped by police officers after leaving a party, she is propelled into a harrowing night in which she must fight for her rights even though justice lies on the side of her tormentors. Employing impressive cinematic techniques and anchored by a tour-de-force performance from newcomer Mariam Al Ferjani, Kaouther Ben Hania's BEAUTY AND THE DOGS tells an urgent, unapologetic, and important story head-on. A rare, startling film from a female Tunisian director, it’s a striking critique on a repressive society and a forcefully feminist rallying cry.

Special Features:

  • Interview with director Kaouther Ben Hania by writer/​philosopher Michel Onfray
  • ​The Slipperiness of Images - a new video essay with film scholar Suzanne Gauch​ 
  • Theatrical trailer​
  • With an exclusive essay by ​Patricia White, author of Women’s Cinema, World Cinema: Projecting Contemporary Feminisms
