Michel Boujenah (born 3 November 1952) is a French-Tunisian Jewish actor, comedian,[clarification needed] film director and screenwriter.

Early life[edit]

Michel Boujenah was born on 3 November 1952 in Tunis, Tunisia. He is the brother of Paul Boujenah, a film director, and the uncle of Matthieu Boujenah, a comedian.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Boujenah has appeared in over twenty-five films and almost ten television productions. He has also directed three films and served as screenwriter on four films.

Controversy[edit]

In 2017, Boujenah's invitation to appear at a Tunisian cultural festival was protested by activists involved in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel. While Boujenah is not Israeli, he has spoken positively about Israel and said "I feel Jewish, French, Tunisian, Zionist and very close to Israel, as well as a supporter of a Palestinian state." The Tunisian Association for Support of Minorities defended Boujenah and accused boycott-promoters of anti-Semitism. [1]
