You Resemble Me


During the bombing attacks in Paris in 2015, a young woman called Hasna Aït Boulahcen was arrested and identified as Europe’s first female bomber. Journalist Dina Amer interviewed her friends and family; she has since reimagined her story, beginning with her wrenching separation as a child from her sister when they were placed with different foster families. Three actresses play the troubled adult Boulahcen becomes, reflecting her sense of fractured identity as she searches for something to do that will make her feel she belongs. This is tour-de-force filmmaking, backed by Spike Lee and Spike Jonze as executive producers.

After the film, there will be a Q&A with the director of the film, Dina Amer.
