Under the Fig Trees12A
In North West Tunisia, a group of young women work the summer harvest. Under the gaze of older workers and the men of the village, they flirt, tease, and quarrel – trying to understand each other and find (or flee) deeper connections. Set in a picturesque Tunisian orchard, Erige Sehiri’s fiction debut is a gorgeously lyrical drama and a reminder of the importance of savouring the joys of the everyday.
‘The film’s naturalism flows like a gentle summer’s breeze.’
Marina Ashioti, Little White Lies
‘Love, liberation and oppression all take their turn under the sun as community is strengthened or challenged, and a society is subtly implied.’
Nick Hasted, The Arts Desk

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
