“When Monaliza Smiled”

When Monaliza Smiled

Directed by Fadi Haddad, 80 min, Drama/ Comedy, in Arabic with English subtitles

Monaliza, a 37-year-old Jordanian woman with an extreme inability to draw a smile on her face, finally gets a governmental job after 15 years of waiting. It is unpleasant news to Afar; her older, grumpy, unmarried agoraphobic sister. At work, Monaliza meets Hamdi, the jolly Egyptian tea guy. Through a journey of transformation, Monaliza comes face to face with a community of nosy characters and quirky stereotypes.

The film was nominated to the Muhr Arab Award for Best Feature Film at Dubai International Film Festival.

Special thanks to Fadi Haddad for his cooperation.
