In December 2020 MENA Arts UK invited artists and filmmakers across the UK to conceive a new one-minute film, exploring the question: How should the MENA+ arts community celebrate what we have in common?

The result was eight enchanting, joyful, and thought-provoking films spanning animation, music, poetry, dance, installation and comedy.

Maral Mamaghanizadeh was one of the artists commissioned and she created a ¬†provocation, “Unveil Your Eyes.”

Maral shows the audience central Birmingham through lens of her experience as a Deaf refugee from Iran.
