WHEN MONALIZA SMILED

FADI HADDAD

8 January 2019, 6:30 PM - 8 PM

Monaliza, a 37-year-old Jordanian woman unable to draw a smile, grew up with her grumpy, older, unmarried, agoraphobic sister, Afaf. After a ten year wait, Monaliza finally gets a job in an old government department where she meets Hamdi, the jolly Egyptian tea guy. On her journey of transformation, Monaliza is confronted by a community of nosy and quirky stereotypes from the heart of the colourful city, Amman.

This screening is part of the Jordanian Film Month at Dar El-Nimer, in partnership with the Royal Film Commission – Jordan
