Maha Al-Saati (@elosnest)’s brilliant EAT ME: CYCLE OF APPLES is a fable of women’s suffering, inspired by Eve’s “forbidden apple” in the Garden of Eden, and Snow White. Filmed in Saudi Arabia, it could be set anywhere in the world today, with its urgent and all-too-timely message about the cycle of abuse against women — best viewed on a loop for full effect. 🍎 “I aspire to keep on truly exploring what it means to be a female in the changing landscape of Saudi Arabia.” 📽 Keep voting (by liking ❤️) for your favourite #TIFFxInstagram shorts from now til July 18 to help crown the Audience Award winner. . . . . #shortfilm #filmfestival #director #editor #cinematographer #digitalshort #saudiarabia #womeninfilm #femalefilmmakers #womensrights #gardenofeden #apple
