Tunisia’s Ministry of Culture has banned the Oscar-nominated gay film Call Me By Your Name, a love story between two men. The film was set to be screened in Tunis on February 28.

The feature film was due to be screened on Wednesday night in the capital Tunis but the venue announced on Facebook that the event had been “cancelled”.

Lassaad Goubantini, the film’s distributor, called the decision an “attack on liberties” due to the film’s subject matter and that it is contrary to the Tunisian Constitution.

Tunisia continues to punish homosexuality with prison sentences.
