About the film

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, 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.

What people are saying

A powerful cry from the heart. It has a scrappy, throat-grabbing energy.

Phil de Semlyen

Time Out

A bold feature debut… Thought provoking… A nuanced character study.

Elsa Keslassy

Variety

Spellbinding and visually audacious.

Matt Fagerholm

Roger Ebert

Tour-de-force filmmaking that defies conventions in its search for the truth about what makes us the people we are… Knockout work that refuses to toe the line of conventional thought.

Kaleem Aftab

cineuropa

Searing and provocative… A formidable debut… Boisterous and kinetic… As daring as it sounds… Even Spike Lee at his most provocative might shy away from material as subversive as this.

Rory O'Connor

The Film Stage

Breathless… Hits home emotionally.

Lee Marshall

Screen International

Amazing.

Thomas L. Friedman

The New York Times

An affecting and confident debut. A gripping and painful story of dislocation and belonging.

Lovia Gyarkye

The Hollywood Reporter

An extraordinary directorial debut — based on actual events — in which form and content fuse to discover a new cinematic language.
