One year following the start of the Tunisian revolution that shook the world, Arabic Graffiti artist eL seed returns to his homeland. His goal: to commemorate the fleeting unity that had given birth to the revolution. In the town of Kairouan, the work begins, and eL Seed finds himself in the midst of a project that has in fact become a vehicle for participative democracy, communal self-reflection and self-expression. As the most powerful tool for change and agency, eL Seed and the people of Kairouan invite the viewer to witness how creativity can be the very pinnacle of progress and democratization.
