Secularism, difference and the family in Roschdy Zem’s Mauvaise foi/Bad Faith

Part of the FilmTalk lecture series: Sleeping with the Enemy held in partnership with the Leo Baeck Institute London.

Mauvaise foi is a comedy that revolves around the consequences of the secular Jewish heroine’s discovery that she is pregnant, and the increasingly problematic decision she and her equally secular Arab-Muslim boyfriend take to keep the baby and tell their not-so-secular families.

Carrie Tarr is Emerita Professor of Film at Kingston University, UK. Her books include Cinema and the Second Sex: Women’s Filmmaking in France in the 1980s and 1990s (2001, with B. Rollet) and Reframing Difference: Beur and banlieue filmmaking in France (2005). She is currently working on the representation of Jews and Arabs in French and Maghrebi cinema(s).
