Synopsis

Au jour le jour, ce film raconte l’histoire d’une difficile naissance. Celle de la démocratie. La première du monde arabe. Au lendemain de la révolution qui a mis un terme à Ben Ali et ses 23 ans de règne, les Tunisiens font un choix radical : doter le pays d’une nouvelle Constitution. Appelés aux urnes pour les premières élections libres de leur histoire, ils ne devront pas seulement élire des dirigeants, mais choisir en même temps le modèle de société dans lequel ils souhaitent vivre. Islam, laïcité, statut de la femme… un scrutin sous haute tension…

 

Day by day, this film tells the story of a difficult birth: that of the first democracy in the Arab world.
In 6 months, no less than 110 political parties were created. In this political turmoil, a few of them emerge: the Islamist party Ennahda seduces those disappointed with the revolution. Some other modernist parties, such as Ettakatol and the PDP, are divided on the content of their policies as well as on which strategy to adopt. Leading the polls, Ennahda will confirm its success in the elections with more than 90 seats out of 217.
This film gives the reasons for the outcome of the elections.
