Young Filmmakers’ Circle | Short Films from the Arab World in partnership with the Film and New Media NYU Abu Dhabi
Blue Hall at The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi 13 March 2018
The public joined members of the Young Filmmakers for a short film screening night, followed by a panel discussion on the art form moderated by artist and writer Hind Mezaina, with filmmaker Amena Al Nowais, educator Greg Unaru, and partner of MAD Solutions Abdallah Al Shami.
The evening focussed on short films from the Arab world. It began with ‘Omnia’, Amna Al Nowais’ powerful short film which explores the psychological and physical effects of female circumcision. Next up was ‘Ave Maria’, a comedy which tells the story of the Nuns of the Sisters of Mercy. Located in the in the West Bank wilderness, their daily routine of silence and prayer is disrupted when a family of religious settlers crash their car into the convent’s wall. It concluded with ‘Ayny’, an animated short film about two young boys who
have run away from their mother’s protection into war, following their dream of playing an Oud.
