Silence and scream: Moufida Tlatli’s cinematic suite
One way to look at Tunisian film-maker Tlatli’s two films to date, Saimt el Qusur/Silences of the Palace (1993) and La Saison des hommes/Season of Men (2000) is to watch them in a continuum, as two movements of a cinematic suite, structured around two central call-and-response elements: silence and scream. Sound and silence then become central to the architecture of the narrative, to the organization of space (both literal and symbolic) in the film. As signifiers, they also function as echoes of the cultural history of Tunisia.
