A crossed portrait of immigration between the south and the north of the Mediterranean, between Tunisia and Italy, is the subject of the short film "Babour", awarded in Vinci as the best documentary of “ Inter-Rives 5: stories of travels and seas”.

Through the story of the two main characters, the film director of the Tunisian Television Fedia Ben Henda  tells the difficulties encountered by both of them and the mutual influence between these two cultures, few miles far away from each other, separated by the sea, that plays a key role in their exchanges and human relations.
