  • Description

    The Carthage Film Festival, which ended in Tunisia on Saturday (23 October) has been reflecting the growing development of the cinema in the Third World.

    SYNOPSIS: The organisers, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, declared the festival a considerable success. Once again, the event -- now in its sixth year -- attracted wide interest. African entries dominated with a particularly strong group from west and north African states -- including Senegal. A special guest was the widow of Palestinian film maker, Hani Jauhanieh, who was killed in war-torn Lebanon during the making of his award winning entry "La Clef".

    Senegalese director Ben Diogaye Beye won a gold award for his film "Samba Tali". Tunisian film maker Naceur Ktari received the premier award with his entry "Les Ambassadeurs". Fellow Tunisian, Zoubeir Mahdjoub also gained an award for his entry "Les Deux Souris Blanches". Other awards went to Dikongue Pipa from the Cameroun for his film "Muna Moto" and to Sidney Sokhona of Mauritania for his work "Nationalite Immigre".
