May Ziadé is a French and Lebanese filmmaker and filmworker based in London, UK, whose work “explores the physical and emotional consequences of the cultural and social pressures to conform.” We featured her film “Neo Nahda”—centered around archived images of Arab women cross-dressing in the 1920s—which explores the act of searching the archives for hidden treasures that could reveal things about the psyche of a new generation.
