Synopsis

This film presents one of the most successful models of peaceful cohabitation between peoples and their religions. El Ghriba represents a coexistence that the world today struggles to establish elsewhere. The annual pilgrimage of El Ghriba on the Island of Djerba in Tunisia is one of the most famous events celebrations. It is an event with its folklore deeply rooted in the history and memory of the Jews and Muslims, but also in its pilgrims from all over the world, who in this film give an animated and festive image of an unforgettable moment.
