Narrative Film Selected for Competition Shorts of the Bentonville Film Festival An independent hard-of-hearing Yemeni-American director and cinematographer, Alaa Zabara recognizes the power of media to “change the hearts and minds of an audience, highlight the stories that need to be told, and to amplify the voices of the voiceless.” Her newest film, “Selahy ‘My Weapon,’” is an official selection of the Bentonville Film Festival in Bentonville, Arkansas where it will screen during the first week of August.

It will compete within the festival’s Competition Shorts program. In 2015, Zabara and her family were evacuated from the crisis in Yemen, an event that has shaped her life and her storytelling goals as a filmmaker.
