As I write this, an elegant little crow has landed on the table of my luxury hotel room's balcony overlooking Burj Al Arab. Yes, it's like that here, a mix of celebrity, cinema, sweeping man-made landscapes and the best that nature has to offer.
May in the Summer is a comedic drama about a Palestinian-American writer who goes home to Jordan for her wedding. I had the pleasure of interviewing the writer, director, and star Cherien Dabis shortly after the film's world premiere last year at the Sundance Film Festival.
Written and directed by Cherien Dabis, May in the Summer is a disarmingly humorous, sharply observed and deeply affecting story about a Palestinian-American writer, May, who returns to her childhood home in Jordan in preparation for her summertime wedding.
