Gossip and violence run rampant deep in the labyrinthine alleys of East Amman. Ali, a hustler pretending to be a businessman, has to keep his relationship with Lana a secret in order to hide from society’s judgemental eye. Things start to fall apart when Lana’s mother, Aseel, is blackmailed by an unknown voyeur who has filmed the young couple.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Bassel Ghandour.
Screening as part of SAFAR Film Festival: The Stories We Tell in Arab Cinema 1-17 July 2022
