Filmed during the first year after the «Tunisian Revolution» the film is a poetic journey through a troubled country. Between revolution and a new political system, between dictatorship and first elections, between order and chaos emerges a landscape of disillusion, but also humor and hope. “A Letter to Mohamed” is a compilation of fragments about the aftermath of a revolution, intercut with a letter about the personal impressions of the filmmaker’s journey.
