In March, Tunis saw the opening of what it calls “the largest cultural complex in the Maghreb, the Arab world and Africa”, a 22-acre City of Culture in central Tunis that includes a host of viewing auditoria and also audiovisual library dedicated to preserving Tunisian cinema. It is the first Cinemateque in the Arab world. The $50m complex is further confirmation of Tunisia’s status as the most stable Arab country in terms of providing a reliable stream of high quality local films every year.
