Cultural and intergenerational trauma erupt in this story about two sisters on the outskirts of Paris. After the siblings are torn apart, the eldest, Hasna, struggles to find her identity, leading to a choice that shocks the world. Director Dina Amer takes on one of the darkest issues of our time and deconstructs it in an intimate story about family, love, sisterhood, and belonging.

“A gripping and painful story of dislocation and belonging.”


“Former journalist Dina Amer’s You Resemble Me is tour-de-force filmmaking that defies conventions in its search for the truth about what makes us the people we are.”
