Oscar Nominee Four Daughters Now Available

Kino Lorber is proud to announce that Four Daughters has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards®. Stream it now on Kino Film Collection with a 7-day free trial!

One of the year's most acclaimed releases, this riveting documentary by two-time Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania (The Man Who Sold His Skin) uses an audacious formal conceit to tell the story of Olfa Hamrouni and her four daughters. Attempting to answer the question of how and why the Tunisian woman’s two eldest were radicalized, Ben Hania reveals a complex history. We watch as the family relives key events in their lives with help from professional actors standing in for the missing girls. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Cannes Film Festival, Best Documentary Feature at the Gotham Awards, and Best Writing at the IDA Documentary Awards, Four Daughters is a compelling portrait of five women and a unique and ambitious work of nonfiction cinema that pushes against the conventional boundaries of the documentary form to explore the nature of memory, rebellion, and the ties that bind mothers and daughters.

“A revelatory, poignant blend of drama, memory, and self-scrutiny."
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Formally daring, emotionally gripping…a heartbreaker about mothers and daughters, the cruelty of repression and the slippery but revealing nature of performance.”
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“One of the best films of the year. Full of joy and laughter, as well as tears.. but most of all, it’s filled with life, and all the triumphs and pleasure, pain and disappointments that go with it.” – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
