The film enjoyed a triumphal return home last month.The film was given its second Arab nod of approval Wednesday afternoon, when Bouzid was awarded the prize for best feature-length fiction at this year's Dubai International Film Festival.Farah expresses restlessness when the band's manager Ali (Aymen Omrani) – who spends most of his on-screen time filming the band's rehearsals and performances – begins to restrict the band's crowd-pleasing concert playlist.State security remains as attentive of the band's lyrics as ever. When, on the night of a performance, the cops shut down a concert venue, Farah defiantly performs one of the songs on the street, fomenting the film's final crisis. Anchoring the political side of the film, and foiling its themes of betrayal and abandonment, is Farah and Hayet's strong mother-daughter relationship.For more information on DIFF, see http://dubaifilmfest.com/en/press/films/list.html
