The Girl, Whose Shadow Reflects the Moon
Direction: Walaa Al Alawi
On this occasion, Walaa, aged 16, presents us with an interesting exercise in metacinema, with a voice that makes reference to the filming itself, and who uses her own hand to pore over and scrutinise the image content. A drama with two moons. An external moon that every night hangs like a question mark in the sky, and another internal moon that keeps her awake with the stabbing memory of the road to exile.
