Short Film Profile


In a desert village, she has disappeared,
Maj'noun mad with love, goes searching for,
Reality or utopia ...
The village gates between them,
The vastness of the desert seperates them.
The madness of maj'noun feeds the fire of his desire,
It leads him to the ecstasy of the absence.
His body is exhausted in this quest,
Will it lead him to her?

Film notes

"Maj'noun" is a view -both personal and universal-, of a surreal expression, which depicts the body through contemporary dance. It is a free love song, that transcends the limits of language, culture, religion, space and time. It is freely inspired by "Layla Maj'noun" Qays Ibn El Moulawah and "Fou d'Elsa" by Louis Aragon.
"Maj'noun" is a Franco-Tunisian short-movie, which brought together seven co-producers of both countries.
