Daily Indie Trailer Insights – As I Open My Eyes Official Trailer 1 (2016)

Fandango Movieclip Channel describe it as

Tunis, summer 2010, a few months before the Revolution: Farah, 18 years-old, has just graduated, and her family already sees her as a future doctor. But she doesn’t think the same way. She sings in a political rock band. She has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the will of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers too well.

What the trailer tells us

A compelling trailer that shows a rebel within the family. A question that is always posed is how much should you try and direct a child’s life? Teaching a child morals and principles will serve a benefit but encouraging them to become something they are not so they avoid an undesirable life is probably one of the chief problems for the of parents.

This film was originally released in other mediums in 2015, and now it looks to be getting a theatrical release. The trailer is compelling because it entwines almost dark scenes with dramatic music. The film gives you the impressive that the narrative will be on a constant knife edge. The issue that the main character faces is not just that she is a rebel but that she is part of a political band that is a movement within the Arab Spring.

The trailer highlights this is intended to be released in 2016, but no exact date was given but keep an eye out for this one as I predict it will serve many surprises.
