Stable Unstable by Mahmoud Hojeij will have its world premiere at the 10th Dubai International Film Festival

"Lebanese director Mahmoud Hojeij brings his first feature Stable Unstable, which uses the device of a therapist's office to intertwine the stories of several Beirutis who arrive on the same day to try to make sense of their lives. In the desperate attempt to find stability in an unstable country lonely souls come together and drift apart in this pensive exploration of relationships, individuality and mental health.'

Ladder To Damascus by Mohamad Malas will have its MENA premiere at the festival.

"Syrian master auteur Mohamad Malas brings his Ladder to Damascus, shot during the current conflict in his homeland. The film uses the controversial concept of reincarnation to explore the relationship between past and present in Syria through the story of a Ghalia, a girl inhabited by the soul of Zeina, who was drowned the day she was born. Ghalia comes to Damascus to study acting, and finds a place to live in a converted dormitory with young Syrians from all over the country. Love blossoms, but the events in the Syrian streets outside gradually encroach on their idyllic isolation."
