Paper Kite (طيارة ورق)
Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2019
In a strict catholic school, Noor daydreams of making a kite. Not amused by her lack of concentration in class, Sister Caroline punishes her with detention. There she meets new student Zayn who sees Noor’s sketches of kites and encourages her to make one with her. The two embark on a kite-making mission, but they soon find themselves in trouble with the school nuns after breaking into the art room for supplies.
