"Fatima’s Republic" is an intimate portrait of a free and modern woman, a fighter who never gives up. An immigrant woman who came to France with a republican ideal and chose France as her adoption land against all odds. Fatima-Ezzahra Benomar is 30. She has been living in a squat for several months near Gare du Nord, where many families have found shelter. The court granted them some respite during the winter break. These months mean a lot to her: time to rest, time to find a job in film making, to find a home, to renew her residence permit… She has lived these last years on a wire, but is still active and militant. As a member of Jeudi Noir (Black Thursday), founder of the feminist organization “Les Effrontées" (The Cheeky Ones), and a Front de Gauche activist (a French left-wing party), her commitment is not the one of an utopian, but the one of a woman who concretely sets up an ideal, as a response to the difficulties she has encountered in her life.
