Namour (with director Heidi Saman in person!)

Winner of LA Film Festival’s LA Muse Award

Heidi Saman’s directorial debut follows a young Egyptian-American stuck with a job in the quintessentially-LA valet parking industry. Amidst the economic collapse of 2008 and familial pressures, Steven Bassem negotiates middle-class anxiety and the conflicting pressures of assimilation, via Saman’s astute “fusion of stark alienation and deadpan humor” (The Hollywood Reporter).

Dir. Heidi Saman, 2016, DCP, 80 min.
