If you missed the theatrical release of UAE-made film Zinzana, make sure you catch it in its latest release: On Netflix.

The film, directed by Emirati filmmaker, tells the tale of a prisoner and his guard in a stifling jail cell somewhere in the region. It was acclaimed in its screening at the Dubai International Film Festival in December 2015. Here’s our review.

“Image Nation is delighted to have stellar partners like Netflix and StudioCanal onboard to bring Zinzana to global audiences,” said Michael Garin, CEO of Image Nation Abu Dhabi, in a statement. “Majid is a shining example of the high-calibre talent and artistry coming out of the Middle East at the moment and we’re pleased to be able to provide him with both local support and international access.”
