July 7, 2012 - PRLog -- ArtMattan Productions is pleased to announce that "Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story" can now be obtained on Netflix on DVD!

SCHEHERAZADE, TELL ME A STORY
"The movie is refreshingly blunt in its feminist outrage, but Nasrallah never allows this to compromise character, humor, or artistry.” - CHICAGO READER

"Lively, swift, vibrantly colorful... the film is slyly aware of the daytime talk show as a vehicle for women's concerns." - NEW YORK TIMES

“A poignant tale of empowerment set in Cairo. A clarion call for the Middle East to emerge from the Middle Ages!” – NEWSBLAZE

SCHEHERAZADE: TELL ME A STORY is a tale ripped from today’s headlines and yet a clever reference to the myths and lore of the Middle East.

           Hebba, a television talk-show host, produces a successful political program on a privately owned network. Her husband, Karim, is the deputy editor-in-chief of a government-controlled newspaper. When his promotion is threatened by his wife’s meddling in opposition politics on her program, he sweet-talks her into avoiding controversy and devoting her program to other topics. She begins a series of shows about women’s issues, revealing the stories of strong, resilient women who, like Scheherazade in A Thousand and One Nights, tell their tales to stay alive.  Winner, Lina Mangiacapre Award - Venice Film Festival. Best Screenplay, Brussels International Independent Film Festival. Official Selection, Toronto International Film Festival.
