The UAE will host commercial screenings of two Tunisian films in the coming weeks: Hedi by Mohammad Bin Attita, which releases in select theatres today, and Foreign Body by Raja Amari, starring Palestinian actress Hiam Abbas, to be released on December 4.

Hedi follows the titular protagonist (Majd Mastoura), who is used to others making big decisions for him, until he meets the free-spirited Rim.

Foreign Body follows Samia, a young illegal immigrant in France, who is haunted by the thought of being followed by her extremist brother.

The two titles will show at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai at City Walk and Box Park, in collaboration with distributors MAD Solutions.
