Movie: Zaineb Hates The Snow
Director: Kaouther Ben Hania
What's the movie about:
It is never easy for anyone to adjust to a new place and a new surrounding. And that's true even more in the case of children. For them, to come out of their comfort zone is quite a challenge and that's what 9-year-old Zaineb experiences in this movie. After her father's demise, Zaineb is all set to move to Canada with her mom- where she is told she can witness the snow! Ideally, that should get any kid excited, but the fact that she will be moving out of her comfort zone into a whole new world, makes Zaineb convince herself that she hates snow (and in turn- Canada) Watch this coming-of-age documentary told through the eyes of this little girl. Here's the trailer of the movie.
