On Jan 14, 2020, friends of Lina gather at the premises of ATFD (Tunisian Association of Democratic Women) to pay her one last tribute, knowing that she does not have long left to live.
After a period of prolonged illness, Lina passed away on January 27, 2020 - her own account of January 14 passing away along with her.
In this special episode, her father Sadok Ben Mhenni (a left-wing activist), her friends, the bloggers and activists Hana Trabelsi, Faten Abdelkefi and Haythem El Mekki, recount Lina's commitment, her struggles before and after the revolution, and her relationship to the illness that ultimately took her life.
Henda Chennaoui and Mariem Mcheti bring some of Lina's own intimate texts to life through reading them aloud.
Her family and friends describe the impact that Lina's photos and videos had through documenting and publicising the violations of Ben Ali's dictatorship and other events during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary periods.
Through the multiple testimonies, this episode pieces together and pays tribute to the life of a ' Tunisian girl'.
Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
