Four Daughters

In this mix of documentary and fiction set in Tunisia, 2016, Olfa Hamrouni, a divorced mother of four, discovers two of her daughters have vanished. She learns that they have run off to Syria to join ISIS. Writer-director Kaouther Ben Hania mixes the real Olfa and her daughters with professional actors who play them to understand why. The Hollywood Reporter celebrated Four Daughters as “an enthralling narrative about memory, motherhood and the inherited traumas of a patriarchal society.”
