STORIES OF THE SEA FESTIVAL

El Haouaria is a fishing village in Cap Bon which is located at the heart of Mediterranean issues: environmental, economic, political. These issues explain the subtitle chosen to specify the vocation of these multidisciplinary meetings: CINEMA AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. The cinema is the main axis of the program and it is around films that debates, workshops and conferences are organized to which experts, academics, scientists, self-taught people, men and women in the field are invited. , artists, athletes, students to compare different perspectives on the chosen themes. This gives the festival a studious and festive dimension that is both academic and civic, giving the debate the importance it deserves to strengthen social ties and popularize notions to which the local public is not insensitive. The program is inspired by concerns and current events in the region to fuel reflection in a participatory and friendly framework while creating an activity for young people to question them and get them to think and act in the service of the community.

The themes that will be addressed this year are:

- Illegal immigration

- Piracy, between memory and mythology

Exhibitions, concerts and poetic evenings are planned to enrich these themes which directly refer to the memory of a region suffering the effects of globalization. As such, THE FESTIVAL DES RECITS DE LA MER plays a restorative, unifying and conciliating role. It aims to become the rallying point in the Mediterranean for all those who defend the specificities of the natural and cultural environment by advocating a form of ecological and responsible tourism.

This festival is implemented thanks to the partnership of several regional cultural associations, which demonstrates the good health of Tunisian civil society and its exemplary capacity to unite around common causes and for the sustainability of a young event full of promises.
