Cultural and intergenerational trauma erupt in this story about two sisters on the outskirts of Paris.
After the siblings are torn apart, the eldest, Hasna (Sabrina Ouazani), struggles to find her identity, leading to a choice that shocks the world. Director Dina Amer takes on one of the darkest issues of our time and deconstructs it in an intimate story about family, love, sisterhood and belonging. Cinema heavyweights Spike Lee, Spike Jonze and Riz Ahmed have put their combined weight behind this film, which has been raved about by critics.
This is an extraordinary directorial debut in which form and content fuse to discover a new cinematic language.
