"Raw in its power and light on its feet, Man of Ashes is a handsomely crafted parable of sexual peril and promise." óThe Seattle Times

As his wedding date approaches, handsome young Hachemi must confront and resolve his feelings of guilt and anxiety about a sexual incident from his past.

A thoughtful, beautifully crafted film, Man of Ashes is a fascinating examination of traditional masculine roles and identity in Tunisia.
