Sand Storm (Sufat Chol)
Lamis Ammar, Ruba Bial, Hitham Omari, Khadija Al Akel, Jalal Masrwa / Fiction / Arabic
Shifting sands and changing times.
As surprising as it is illuminating, this award-winning drama is a truly engrossing depiction of life in a Bedouin village through the eyes of Layla, a young college student torn between powerful family traditions and a keen determination to find her own place in the world. Strong performances and authentic locations transport us seamlessly to another world, where Layla is not the only family member forced to reconsider their unwavering loyalty to village conventions.
