About Foreign Body:

The film follows Samia, a young illegal immigrant who ran away from her brother, during her first months in France. Haunted by the fear of being followed by her extremist brother whom she had denounced to the authorities, Samia first finds refuge at Imed's home, a former acquaintance from her village, before ending up working for the rich widow Leila. These new meetings mingle with her headlong flight, where desire enhances tensions.

Foreign Body is written and directed by Raja Amari, and stars Palestinian eminent actress Hiam Abbass, Sarah Hannachi, Salim Kechiouche, and Majd Mastoura. The film is co-produced by Dora Bouchoucha and Dominique Besnhard. The film has been selected at many international film festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), and made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
