Employing impressive cinematic techniques and anchored by a tour-de-force performance from newcomer Mariam Al Ferjani, Beauty and the Dogs presents a gripping moral conundrum surrounding two young Tunisians. When Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, is raped after leaving a party, she is propelled into a harrowing night in which she must fight for her rights and her dignity. Based on a true story, Beauty and the Dogs tells an urgent, unapologetic and important story head-on.

Immediately following the screening will be a talkback with guests TBA.
