STORIES UNTOLD - Arab women uncensored

We all have lives. We all have stories. We all have phones.
C:NTACT (DK) and Ma3mal 612 (JO) present the film series STORIES UNTOLD.

STORIES UNTOLD presents the unique stories of eleven exceptional women from across the Middle East and North Africa region.

The films are made by the women themselves with the help and facilitation of six professional female filmmakers from Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Oman.

The first-time filmmakers have been taught to express themselves visually through film on a need-to-know basis by six female professional filmmakers from the MENA region, who C:NTACT and MA3MAL 612 have worked with to create a method of self-expression through film.

The directors and the first-time filmmakers thus enter in a unique symbiosis, where they together create a completely new genre, distanced from classic documentary and closer to personal storytelling aesthetic.

The films have been screened in all the participating countries. The screenings of the films are free of charge and screened in different communities and societies as well as theatres and cinemas.

The project is funded by the Danish Centre for Gender, Equality and Diversity, KVINFO and Danish-Arab Partnership Programme.
