A screening of the film Papa Hedi followed by a Q&A session with Claire Belhassine.

Hedi Jouini has been described as the Frank Sinatra of the Arab world and remains one of Tunisia's best-loved musicians.

Claire Belhassine was in her 20s and living in London when she discovered that Jouini was her grandfather.

This film charts Claire's journey as she unravels the story of her grandfather's legacy within Tunisian popular culture and the divisive effects his success had on her own family.

In association with Shubbak – A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture.
