Director's Statement

I live in a patriarchal society based on Muslim-Arab values, deeply entrenched in ways that hold the Father as sacred. These values sometimes confine paternity to a blood relationship, a surname, a genetic sequence. Bik Eneich – Un Fils is not just a film about fatherhood; it’s also a film about a couple, their place in society, and also about empowerment—both feminine and masculine. It’s a journey towards the truth—towards emancipation.
