Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story $29.95 $9.99
FORMAT Personal/Home Use only:

This "bold and brave" (Variety) drama from Egyptian filmmaker Yousry Nasrallah is a tale ripped from the headlines, and yet a clever reference to the myths and lore of the Middle East.

Hebba, a TV talk-show host, produces a successful political program on a privately owned network. Her husband, Karim, is the deputy editor-in-chief of a government-controlled newspaper. When his promotion is threatened by his wife's meddling in opposition politics on her program, he sweet-talks her into avoiding controversy and devoting her show to other topics. She begins a series of shows about women's issues, revealing the stories of strong, resilient women who, like Scheherazade in One Thousand and One Nights, tell their tales in order to stay alive. "The movie is refreshingly blunt in its feminist outrage, but Nasrallah never allows this to compromise character, humor, or artistry" (Chicago Reader). Also known as Ehky ya Scheherazade. In Arabic with English subtitles.

Yousry Nasrallah---Egypt---2009---134 mins.

2-DVD set
Includes the Egyptian feature Fallen Angels Paradise (Oussama Fawzi, 2000)
and the short Rotating Square (Ahmed Hassouna, 2002).
