El Haimoune (Wanderers of the Desert) [Tunisia, 1984]:
In the first of Nacer Khemir’s Desert Trilogy, a teacher (Abdesalem) comes to a village seemingly forgotten in the expansive wasteland of blowing sand. A young mischievous boy Hussein asks him what he will teach them. “Grammar, history….” “The history of the garden?” “No, the history of our country.” “The history of our village?” “No, of the entire country!” The boy, though bright in a stealthy way, knows nothing of the great world beyond the desert he sees stretching to all horizons. *
