    Les femmes arabes disent ÇA ? par Nisreen Baker - 2023, 82 min, pour adultes
    En anglais avec sous-titres français

    Avec beaucoup de franchise et autant de nuance, Les femmes arabes disent ÇA ? brosse un portrait sans précédent de femmes arabes vivant au Canada. Allant à l’encontre des idées reçues, le récit révèle les expériences et le point de vue uniques de huit femmes arabes qui partagent leurs opinions, leur cuisine et leurs éclats de rire. Au rythme de la poésie et de la musique, elles s’expriment sur le féminisme, la politique, l’exil et leur désir d’appartenance.

    Arab Women Say What?!
    by Nisreen Baker - 2023, 82 minutes, for adults
    English with French subtitles

    Arab Women Say What?! embodies the essence of living between two worlds: speaking and dreaming in different languages and lands. Nermeen, a young and bold Egyptian Canadian, invites us to join her circle of friends, a group of eight outspoken, daring Arab women who found each other through their shared love of laughter, food and life. The women examine feminism in Arab society, tackling challenging and often taboo sociopolitical issues. Their conversations offer a glimpse into their personalities, providing a complex understanding of what it means to “not be from here.”
