ABOUT “LEILA AND THE WOLVES”
Heiny Srour’s striking, inventive film features Nabila Zeitouni as Leila, a young Lebanese woman in London who time-travels through twentieth-century Lebanon and Palestine. It was Srour’s second film, after the landmark documentary The Hour of Liberation Has Arrived, and her only feature-length fiction film. Leila and the Wolves brings together elements of documentary and evocations of Arabian mythology. Srour conducted often-dangerous location shooting for several years, combining wondrous compositions with images from archival film to reconstruct conventional historical narratives. Focusing on women’s neglected political and social contributions, Leila and the Wolves brings a sharp feminist perspective to the region’s conflicted colonial past.
