Tunis, summer 2010, a few months before the Revolution: Farah, 18 years old, has just graduated and her family already sees her as a future doctor. But she doesn't have the same idea. She sings in a political rock band, has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the wishes of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers all too well.
"There was a special atmosphere that summer, the feeling of being in a dead end, that something would eventually explode. Young people were in turmoil, they resisted through music, blogging, Internet and their very existence. It is from them that came the energy of what happened later, it is from them that comes the energy of this film. [...] Farah is one of these young people who seeks to live life to the full despite family pressure and an omnipresent police state. As a free and impulsive singer, she is the voice of a generation that resists daily." [Leyla Bouzid]

LEYLA BOUZID (Tunis, 1984) moved to Paris in 2003 to study French literature at the Sorbonne University and then attended La Fémis Film School to study directing. She directed Soubresauts, her thesis film, in Tunisia, a few months before the revolution. She then chose to direct Zakaria in the south of France with non-professional actors. These two short films received a very warm welcome in festival in France and abroad. As I Open My Eyes is her first feature film.
