Film showing and discussion: ‘Fellahin’
The film is directed and produced by Habib Ayeb (University of Paris VIII) and Ray Bush (POLIS, University of Leeds).
The film explores farmer responses to the 2011 uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. It does through the use of interviews with a range of small farmers and in so doing helps promote hidden voices from the political upheavals that both countries have experienced since 2011.
After the film there will be a chance to discuss its contents of the film with Ray Bush who is also writing a book on the role, character and possible future direction of small farmer agriculture in Egypt and Tunisia.
