  • Jacob Burns film center 364 Manville Road NY 10570 (map)

Sanctity, shot in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is a bold short that centres on Areej (Ahd), a young pregnant woman grieving the loss of her husband. Ignoring laws and social customs that forbid her from seeing another man until two months after her husband's death, Areej strikes on odd partnership with a street urchin after her brother-in-law starts blackmailing her for money she apparently owes him. Sanctity is also written and directed by Ahd.
