Cinema sees revival in post-revolution Tunisia
Tabarka is a coastal town located in north-western Tunisia, at about 36°57′16″N 8°45′29″E, close to the border with Algeria. It has been famous for its coral fishing, the Coralis Festival of underwater photography and the annual jazz festival. Tabarka's history is a colorful mosaic of Berber, Phoenician, Hellenistic, Roman and Islamic-Ottoman civilizations. The town is dominated by an offshore rock on which is built a Genoese castle. Nationalist leader Habib Bourguiba, later to become president of post-independence Tunisia, was exiled here by the French colonial authorities in 1952..
