Seekers of Oblivion (Ala Khoutta Al-Nessyan)

(58 mins) SEEKERS OF OBLIVION explores the exciting life and adventures of Isabelle Eberhardt. Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1877, Isabelle left Europe for North Africa at a young age. While there, she consorted with tramps, prostitutes, soldiers, murderers and thieves, at times masquerading as a man in order to gain access to social sectors that were off limits to women. Her enigmatic character continues to seduce, fascinate and astound even today – while defying any easy classification.

In French and Arabic with English subtitles.
