Zeina Durra’s Sundance discovery casts a wry gaze over the bohemian radicals of multi-cultural Manhattan. Asya (Élodie Bouchez) is a French-born artist with an Arabic background. She is struggling to find her voice and make a statement that goes beyond the banal in expressing her perspective on feminism, politics and the sorry state of an unjust world order. A friend has been abducted in what may be a government rendition and she finds herself drawn into a relationship with Mexican ex-pat Javier (José María de Tavira). What follows is a thoughtful, strongly observed portrait of a blithe spirit and the foibles of a privileged elite, proving that Zeina Durra is a talent to watch. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
