Synopsis: Chronicles of Her
Synopsis
Diana, Latifa, Hoda, Amira, and Camilia, five heroines from five different, yet similar, worlds face social and systematic oppression and injustice, against which they need to exhibit the utmost endurance and determination to survive. Despite the distinctiveness of each one’s circumstances and background, they are connected by what they face; inequality, prejudice, and violence as they search for the power within themselves to overcome it all. We follow their journeys as they struggle for hope and a better life.
An anthology of events aiming to commemorate through its five stories, by Arab women writers/directors, countless other untold stories of women in the Arab Maghreb-Mashreq region.
