True to Life - Stories by Ramla Youths

I'm just 18

Through the authentic footage filmed by Marua, and edited with a professional documentary filmmaker, we meet Marua at a key juncture in her life: while suitors ask her father for her hand according to Arab traditions, she dreams of education and self fulfilment. Marua makes her decision in her own unique manner.

Just So

In the authentic footage filmed exclusively by Zoe, and edited in collaboration with her coach, a professional documentary filmmaker, Zoe tries to bridge both the generation and cultural gap between herself, a patriotic and caring teenager and her tradition Bukharian parents.
