The Middle East Film Series presents
A screening of Barakah Meets Barakah (Saudi Arabia, 2015).
Directed by Mahmoud Sabbagh, Saudi Arabia’s first rom-com features comedian and social-media superstar Hisham Fageeh as a mild-mannered civil servant who runs up against his society’s strict mores when he sets out to romance the outspoken daughter of a wealthy couple. Independently produced and directed, Barakah Meets Barakah was picked as Saudi Arabia's second-ever Foreign Language Oscar submission. View the trailer here.
