Press

  • Huffington post
    Duma (Dolls) is an extremely powerful documentary. Brutally realistic; revealingly provocative, and exceedingly enthralling
    Dr Eylem Atakav
  • The film is beautifully shot, – the women are shot from the back, looking out a window,. This element of anonymity in the film makes it so authentic and emphasizes.
    Amy Kronish
  • Tsaloniki Film Festival
    Duma indicates a new tendency in Palestinian cinema towards moving to self-display and criticism, which first started emerging in features with Elia Suleiman’s films and appears to be gaining ground.
    Qais Qassem
  • HAARETZ
    Abeer Haddad's groundbreaking documentary film calls Arab women, who are victims of sexual abuse, to step forward and break the social taboo
    Dr. Raya Morag
