Miel et Cendres est une comédie dramatique suisso-tunisienne réalisée par Nadia Fares Anliker et sortie en 1996.

Synopsis

Le film raconte la rencontre de trois femmes tunisiennes, trois femmes confrontées aux traditions patriarcales conservatrices. Leïla, d'origine modeste, dans l'impossibilité de vivre un amour partagé, a dû fuir et se prostituer. Naïma, médecin, qui l'a prise en charge dans des circonstances extraordinairement pénibles, vit, de son côté, toute seule avec sa fille Mounia. Elle aussi a dû renoncer à une idylle de jeunesse et a fait un mariage arrangé malheureux. Le troisième portrait de femme est celui d'Amina, mariée à un professeur de philosophie aux idées libérales. Elle est pourtant désillusionnée et vit, à présent, séparée.

Most of the characters in the film are not named. A girl disguises herself as a boy to go attend the 2006 World Cup qualifying match between Iran and Bahrain. She travels by bus with a group of male fans, some of whom notice her gender, but do not tell anyone. At the stadium, she persuades a reluctant ticket tout to sell her a ticket; he only agrees to do so at an inflated price. The girl tries to slip through security, but she is spotted and arrested. She is put in a holding pen on the stadium roof with several other women who have also been caught; the pen is frustratingly close to a window onto the match, but the women are at the wrong angle to see it.

The plot concerns two feminist groups in New York City, each voicing their concerns to the public by pirate radio. One group, led by an outspoken white lesbian, Isabel (Adele Bertei), operates "Radio Ragazza". The other group, led by a soft-spoken African-American, Honey (Honey), operates "Phoenix Radio". The local community is stimulated into action after a world-traveling political activist, Adelaide Norris (Jean Satterfield), is arrested upon arriving at a New York City airport, and suspiciously dies while in police custody. Also, there is a Women's Army led by Hilary Hurst (Hilary Hurst) and advised by Zella (Flo Kennedy) that initially both Honey and Isabel refuse to join. This group, along with Norris and the radio stations, are under investigation by a callous FBI agent (Ron Vawter). Their progress is tracked by three editors(Becky Johnston, Pat Murphy, Kathryn Bigelow) for a socialist newspaper run by screenwriter Ed Bowes, who go so far they get fired.
