The Tunisian Film Foreign Body Screens at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai


A screening of another Tunisian film in the same month, the UAE is going to host a commercial screening of the Tunisian film Foreign Body by Raja Amari, starring Palestinian actress Hiam Abbass. The filmwill be released at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai at City Walk as of Thursday, December 7.

This comes a few days after releasing the Tunisian film Hedi by Mohamed Ben Attia at Roxy Cinemas marking the first release of a Tunisian film in the UAE. The release of the films in the UAE took place in cooperation with MAD Solutions, the company that distributes both films in the Arab world.

About Foreign Body:

The film follows Samia, a young illegal immigrant who ran away from her brother, during her first months in France. Haunted by the fear of being followed by her extremist brother whom she had denounced to the authorities, Samia first finds refuge at Imed's home, a former acquaintance from her village, before ending up working for the rich widow Leila. These new meetings mingle with her headlong flight, where desire enhances tensions.

Foreign Body is written and directed by Raja Amari, and stars Palestinian eminent actress Hiam Abbass, Sarah Hannachi, Salim Kechiouche, and Majd Mastoura. The film is co-produced by Dora Bouchoucha and Dominique Besnéhard. The film has been selected at many international film festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), and made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
