As I Open My Eyes
"Farah, eighteen years old, has just graduated and her family already sees her as a future doctor. She doesn't think the same way. She sings in a political rock band. She has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the will of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers too well."

Borderless (Arabic)
"A young boy lives alone on an abandoned ship harbored along the stretch of an unnamed war-torn border. The boy's solitary existence is torn apart when a young refugee appears in search of shelter, carrying an infant.

Much Loved (Arabic)
A group of women in Marrakech, Morocco make a living as prostitutes in a culture that is very unforgiving toward women in that profession."

Theeb = Wolf (Arabic)
"1916. While war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers' quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey."
