History Of Tunisian Cinema 

Tunisian Actress Hafsiya Harzi

Albert Samemah Chekli "The Blood of the Gazelle" 

The Tunisian cinema keeps about 600 art films at the National Film Archive. They treat all subjects of Tunisian society. Some of these films have achieved international success as a "sign of belonging" Cherfi Kamel (director Franco-Tunisian), which won first prize in the Venice Film Festival, Halfaouine, The Child of the Terraces and A Summer in La Goulette of Ferid Boughedir, Naceur Ktari Ambassadors, The Silences of the Palace Moufida Tlatli Essaïda Mohamed Zran red Satin and more recently made ​​by director Raja Amari.

Films exist in Tunisia since its appearance in the world. By 1896, the Lumiere brothers shoot moving pictures in the streets of Tunis. In 1919, the first feature film made ​​in Africa, "The Five Gentlemen Cursed" to-Luitz Morat, was shot in Tunisia. In 1927, the first Tunisian feature film in black and white is directed and produced by Albert Samemah Chekli "The Blood of the Gazelle" where his daughter played the main role and is presented as the first actress in the Arab world. The first film after independence is acted by Omar El Klifi "Al-Fajr" (Dawn) shot in 35 millimeter.

In 1927, the first Tunisian film distribution company, TUNIS-FILM begins the operation. After independence, the film production depended entirely on the limited company Tunisian film production and expansion (SATPEC), which handles the management of cinematographic activities in the country. However, in the 1980s, we witness the emergence of the private sector resulting in the liquidation of the SATPEC. A period that represents the golden age of Tunisian cinema with the emergence of a social character and films that deal with the question of authority of all kinds.
