§ One Response to Credits

  • Hello — I am writing to invite this film to screen in the Seattle International Film Festival. I have sent an invitation to Hala at her email address, but have not heard back. We are confirming our program shortly — if you’re able to put me in touch with the right person to talk to, I’d appreciate it.
