What’s the connection between an ancient desert culture and a blockbuster movie?

The Bardo Museum in Tunis reflects the many cultures that make up modern Tunisia. European, African and Middle Eastern influences are all represented in the Museum’s collection.

But only a few decades ago, these deserts were invaded by another tribe, led by a Hollywood director named George Lucas.

How did the Berber culture of Southern Tunisia inspire and influence the creator of the Star Wars films?   What’s the real history behind Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine?

The answer is a museum secret.
