In Vitro is a post-apocalyptic, Arabic-language art film combining science fiction, live action and historical footage. In a converted nuclear reactor under the biblical city of Bethlehem, Dunia, the dying founder of a hi-tech orchard designed to reverse the effects on an eco-apocalypse, passes on instructions to her younger successor, leading to an emotional tale of memory, loss and dystopia.
Nation Estate - Short Fiction
A ten-minute sci-fi short that mixes computer generated imagery and real actors to offer a clinically dystopic yet humorous approach to the deadlock in the Middle East. In a not too distant future, the conflict in Palestine has reached its conclusion. Palestinians have their nation now in the shape of a single hi-tech building – the Nation Estate – located in the West Bank. The film follows the female lead in a futuristic folklore outfit on her way to her flat on the Bethlehem floor, unveiling the building on her way to an Arabic electronica soundtrack.
