Upon the Shadow
Nada Mezni Hafaiedh

In 2013, Amina Sboui, who was 18 at the time, posted a photo of herself on Facebook, bare-chested with the text ‘My body is mine and not the source of other people’s honour.’ written on her chest. This was the first FEMEN protest in Tunisia. Her following arrest caused a worldwide array of protests, which resulted in her release. Three years later we visit Amina in the house that she shares with a group of LGBT friends. Rejection by family and society, and the pain that accompany this, form a constant thread running through their lives.
