Barakah meets Barakah – Arabic Film Screening

11 December '17 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


The Arabic Film Society at SOAS University will be screening a Saudi romantic comedy, Barakah meets Barakah on Monday 11 December.
Directed by Mahmoud Sabbagh, the story sees twenty-something civil servant Barakah run into Bibi, an online star with a hugely popular vlog. Under the ever-watchful eye of Saudi’s rather strict authorities, coupled with any unchaperoned public meeting being strictly prohibited, makes even getting to the first date a near-impossible endeavor.

Take a look at the trailer and join the SOAS Arabic Film Society at SALT (first floor Senate House) for a 7.10pm screening start.
