Yeah Moustafa

Australia, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Fiction)

Director: Ali Higson

Belly-dancing, beer, love handles and beer-bellies. Cultures collide in the life of Annette the belly dancer. Embracing Lebanese culture, she discovers that cultural stereotyping works both ways, facing chauvinism and fighting cultural myth number two: that you are born with the rhythm in you, it cannot be learnt.
