About the Film:
Part of the Women in Film
Directed by Heidi Saman. 2016. USA. 80 min. English and Arabic with English subtitles.
California-raised Heidi Saman’s debut feature film took the LA Muse Award at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival. Her slick, smart film brings us Steven (Karim Saleh), an Arab-American valet stuck in a post-college rut while his parents divorce and his grandmother—Namour—is moved to a convalescent home. Saman insightfully captures the immigrant experience in recession-era Los Angeles.
