With support from the Swiss fund visions sud est, Kaouther Ben Hania made it to the Cannes red carpet in the 2017 Un Certain Regard section with this controversial story based on true events. Delving into the terrible night of a young Tunisian who tries to bring charges against the police officers who raped her, the intense Beauty and the Dogs has become an important and unforgettable film in the year of the Weinstein affair.
