The Family Home

Here’s a film I wrote and directed this past year. It was an interesting project, trying to work in Arabic (which I don’t speak) and in a Muslim cultural context (I’m not a Muslim). We tried to focus, though, on issues that are common to all people. Our desire to justify ourselves, and prove we’re right even when facing extreme evidence to the contrary.

It was delightful to get to work with some really wonderful people, including our actors, who are all refugees from Syria.

What do you think? Does the film work for you in English? Are you able to follow the story?
