Quote by Tahani Rached

"I'm always very reticent about answers. The film has to raise questions and to raise discussion in one's mind at least, if not within a group. I think that reality is very complex and many questions arise. It's not so easy. Whenever you come up with a straight answer, many people won't be at all interested in listening to you, because they already know whatever it is you will say at the end. I would rather do films that raise questions than bring answers."

Quotes by Tahani Rached [in French]

"À l'ONF, je jouis d'une liberté extraordinaire, dont celle de prendre le temps qu'il faut pour écouter, pour réfléchir. Le temps est un luxe aujourd'hui."
-- Tahani Rached (source)

"Lorsque je commence à faire un film, le sujet et les personnages me prennent par la main. J'ai fait ma recherche et je sais où je m'en vais, mais à un moment donné il me faut lâcher prise afin qu'eux me prennent, m'emmènent, me bouleversent, me remettent en question. Il ne faut pas enfermer les personnages dans le film, mais au contraire les laisser libres pour voir jusqu'où ils peuvent m'emmener."
-- Tahani Rached (source)

Quote about Tahani Rached

"Despite the time it takes to make them, her films always seem to emerge just as an issue is reaching wide public consciousness. Poverty, racism, homelessness, immigration, war and exile, healthcare, AIDS; urgency and timeliness are what really define Tahani Rached's oeuvre."
-- Jocelyne Clarke (source)

Quote about Tahani Rached [in French]

"Quand elle a quitté le Québec, après avoir été renvoyée de l'ONF, en 2004, Tahani Rached pensait laisser le cinéma de côté. Peine perdue : moins de deux ans après son retour au Caire, le film [El-banate dol] était projeté, hors compétition, à Cannes."
-- Anabelle Nicoud (source)
