Strong “قوية “

“Strong” is a documentary about Arab women who expressed through street art, dance and sport.

This movie came from a desire to breakdown stereotypes about Arab women.

It contains testimony from women who speak of their art, their daily lives and give their perception of feminism. They are principally from Lebanon but also Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Tunisia.

Here is the trailer.
