CinemaNA: Three Films by Jocelyne Saab


WHEN November 8, 2021
7:30 PM WHERE Online Part of "CinemaNA" WHO The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Open to the Public

A live conversation with award-winning filmmaker and photographer, Jocelyne Saab. Before the conversation, we invite you to watch three of her films.

This ongoing series showcases groundbreaking films alongside discussions with the filmmakers and faculty. Each set of screenings will be available for on-demand viewing on our website, followed by a Q&A with the creatives behind the films.

This month’s films include:

  • Dunia, Kiss Me Not On The Eyes
    A meditation on female desire, often a taboo subject, especially in the Egyptian society where the film takes place. Driven by the powerful eroticism of Arab poetry and music, the film talks about love and desire, through the experience of a young woman traditionally and strictly educated. The film leads to the trauma provoked by female genital mutilation (which, according to UNICEF, Amnesty International, and PNUD reports, affects 97 percent of women in Egypt in 2003).
Organized by
  • Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi
  • NYUAD Film and New Media Program
