Dans les années 1970, les pays d ' Afrique et du Maghreb voient émerger des cinéastes qui presque aussitôt semblent prometteurs et retiennent l ' inté­ rêt. En Tunisie, c'est Ridha Behi avec Les Seuils interdits ( 1 9 72) et Soleil des hyènes (1 977) ou Abdellatif Ben Ammar avec Une si simple histoire (1969), Sejnane ( 19 73) et Aziza ( 1 9 8 0) Au Maroc, c'est Souhel Ben Barka avec Les Mille et Une Mains (1972), La guerre du pétrole n 'aura pas lieu ( 1 975 ) et Les Noces de sang (1977) ou Moumen Smihi avec El Chergui ou Le Silence Violent (1976).
