Nasser, an unexceptional washout, is diagnosed with a brain tumor when he meets an enigmatic and peculiar young woman. Infatuated by her and sick of being a failure, he must quickly figure out what he wants to do in life before going through a risky surgery. He decides to reach out to the young woman with the most seductive way there is… a song.
Rooted in the cultural reality of pre-2015 Saudi, where men barely interacted with the opposite sex outside of the confines of marriage, Raven Song is a satire about an absurd love story and a seemingly lost soul. It is Mohamad Al Salman’s first feature film and was Saudi Arabia’s Oscar Submission in 2023.
This screening is presented in partnership with Generation 2030.
