The CGS jury said, “The Princess film is extremely stressful and well-made, starting with a strong script, effective montage at a fast pace, not forgetting the excellent cast from first to last shot, and to creating a complex and tense story about the meaning of family and parenting in an actor’s context. In it strongly xenophobic and deep divisions, from the point of view of cinematic language the depiction’s use of symbolic elements, creates a connection between generations in an interesting way, the director creates a story that reaches to the depths where the victims are, once again, the younger ones, who grow up and mature in hatred as if this were a feature hereditary, without denying the possibility of a different choice.
The events of the film revolve around “Amira”, a Palestinian teenager who was born with a microscopic insemination process after her father, Nawar, who is imprisoned in Israeli prisons, smuggled the semen of her father, although their relationship is limited to prison visits, Nawar remains the hero of a princess, and the love of those around her compensates her for her father’s absence, but when attempts fail Another child is born and Nawar is revealed to be sterile, Amiras life is turned upside down.
