Barakah Meets Barakah on the Film Screening Programme of Cinema Akil "Work In Progress" in Dubai


Mahmoud Sabbagh's film Barakah Meets Barakah will be screened on Friday, March 17, 2017, at 07:00pm (GMT) at The Yard at Dubai's Alserkal Avenue. Entry is free of charge with a strict first-come-first-seated policy. The film will be screened as part of the Work in Progress film programme, which is organized by Cinema Akil in collaboration with Alserkal Avenue to enrich the cinema-going culture in Dubai.

Barakah Meets Barakah, Saudi Arabia's official submission to the 2017 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, tells the story of two lovers who are united in an environment hostile to dating of any kind. He is Barakah, the municipal civil servant from Jeddah, who is also an amateur actor in a theatrical troupe. She is Barakah, a wild beauty, who functions as a crowd-puller for her stylish mother's boutique and runs her own widely-seen vlog. They both defy customs and traditions, as well as the religious police, using modern communication technologies and traditional dating methods.

Written and directed by Mahmoud Sabbagh, Barakah Meets Barakah stars Hisham Fageeh, Fatima Al Banawi, Sami Hifny, Abdulmajeed Alruhaidi and Khairia Nazmi. The film is produced by El Housh Productions, and jointly distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions and Film Clinic-Indie Distribution (FCID).
