Fall Grants 2019 - Post-Production Stage
The airing of the Arabic version of an international dating TV show, that offers a panel of women the choice of a potential male suitor, sparks uproar and turns the show host into a public enemy. Written, narrated and played by the show host himself, Fouad Yammine, ‘TV Society’ is a journey of self-discovery and finding one’s role to play in society despite all the challenges.
