Line of Sight

Spring Grant 2012 - Post-Production Stage

Aseel Mansour / Feature Narrative / Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Qatar / 2012 / 84 min / Colour / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama, Suspense


The film opens with a single shot showing a confrontation between Laila and Sami. Laila, a 22-year-old woman is standing on a balcony on the first floor of her villa, pointing a gun at Sami, a 25-year-old man standing in the street. They are locked in this confrontation since Laila cannot let Sami out of her sight. The film then travels through two opposing timelines: one follows the near-real-time confrontation and its escalation; the other exposes the history of the two characters.
