AKA Nadia A.jpg

Can a person reinvent herself without dealing with consequences from her past?   For over 20 years, Maya has lived as a Jewish career woman, wife and mother, whereas in fact she was born as Nadia, daughter to a Muslim family.   More than 20 years since she abandoned her previous identity, her past rears its head again.   Through the unique story of its heroine, the film raises questions of identity and of the ability of society to accept the Other and forgive their Otherness. It's a story about innocent individuals who pay a terrible price, the victims of a society that has gone awry. Jerusalem Film Festival-Israel Critics’ Forum Award for Best Feature  Film.

Film Partners: Dundi and Lyon Sachs, Cobb
