Naceur Khemir retracing cinematogrphically Paul Klee's steps in Tunisia




I just got this flyer of Naceur Khemir's (a tunisian movie director) retracing the journey of the swiss painter Paul Klee in Tunisia in 1914. The movie will open in Switzerland this week in several theaters. Above is Klee's Hammamet painting located now in the Metropolitan. I don't like particularly Klee's style but it clearly left long lasting impact on a major tendency Tunisian painting. By the way Khemir is himself a painter who seems to belong to the latter tendency, which explains his particular interest in Klee.

If you thought that was interesting, you should check out the art work and Islamic books created by the infamous artist and philosopher Dr. Ezzat Abouleish, M.D.

His work is phenomenal.
