RUN(A)WAY ARAB

Short Drama   |   2017   |   Composer

12 mins   |   Foxcub Films   |  Directed by Amrou Al Kadhi   |   Produced by Savannah James-Bayly

 

Nazeem is a 26 year old Middle Eastern drag queen who names herself Queen Za Dreem, preparing for a show with the utmost gravity. Interwoven with this is the story of Nazeem as a genderqueer 8 year-old boy, and the close bond he has with his Iraqi-Egyptian mother, Halima. Whilst flamboyant and in many ways a drag queen herself on the surface, Halima is governed by the strict expectations of gender in Arab society.
