Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates | 2019 | Shahad Ameen
Saudi Arabia’s submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Int’l Feature Film is a gorgeously photographed feminist fable in which a 12-year-old girl in a remote, patriarchal fishing village bucks one of her community’s longstanding traditions—that of requiring each family to sacrifice a daughter to sea maidens in order to guarantee good catches. “With its glittering black-and-white cinematography, immersive sound design, eerie score and creepy reveal, the film taps into something primal and chilling…Marks Ameen as a talent to watch.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 74 min.
