New Arab Women’s Film Collective, Rawiyat – Sisters in Film, Launched

Filmmaker and journalist Dorothée-Myriam Kellou has announced the creation of a new collective, Rawiyat – Sisters in Film, at the El Gouna Film Festival.

Speaking on the “Women’s Empowerment Through Film” panel at the festival, Kellou said: “The English name is Sisters in Film, and the Arabic name, Rawiyat, is the feminine term for storytellers. There are nine of us who are co-founders of the collective. We had all recently gone through the emotionally wrought and financially draining experience of making our first film. And we realized that it would be very hard to do a second film, without more emotional and financial support.”

The group, which will be headquarters in Paris and Tunis, was founded by Naziha Arebi (Libya/U.K.), Yasmina Chouikh (Algeria), Danielle Davie (Lebanon), Myriam El Hage (Lebanon), Kellou (Algeria/France), Dina Naser (Jordan), Erige Sehiri (Tunisia), Lina Soualem (Palestine/Algeria/France) and Kawthar Younis (Egypt).

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning had one of the greatest on-field rivalries in the history of sports.

Manning’s not letting it die just because he’s retired.

Manning needles Brady on Gronk throw, 4th down

Brady is having a remarkable age 43 campaign in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But Manning wants to make sure we’re not getting too carried away with praise and did a segment on his ESPN+ show “Detail” he titled “Do you think Tom was throwing to Gronk?”

In it, he questioned whether Brady actually intended to make a great throw in a Week 6 win over the Green Bay Packers or whether in fact he just got bailed out
