Sara Ishaq talks to Qantara About Yemen and ‘The Mulberry House’
Sara Ishaq, one of Yemen’s foremost young filmmakers, speaks to Nader Alsarras about the situation in Yemen following the revolution of 2011, and her second film, The Mulberry House.
The film explores the dramatic change that Ishaq observed when she returned home to Yemen after five years studying abroad, both in her familial dynamic and in the country as a whole. She explains, “For me, the change in my family was like a revolution. It also reflected the transformation of society – a transformation that ultimately led to the revolution.”
