Nouvelle Nahda is a documentary film essay that explores and expands on the notion of Nahda. Nahda is Arabic for renaissance, getting up, awakening. Based on biographical stories the film captures transformative journeys of different artists while reflecting on the nature of change. In an essayistic manner it breaks the linear narration of (his-)stories, as it brings together different voices and interventions. All throughout the very idea of Nahda, which unfolds, morphs, and keeps on reaching.
