Fatima, Farah, Haya. Three artists from across the Arab World; marginalised by patriarchy, stifled by censorship, and divided by borders not easily breached. United by creativity, energy, and a belief in these two factors alone as catalysts for real change.


Now, in Barcelona, they find themselves away from home, but together for the first time. Borders and Promises follows these women as their lives and their art become woven together while they struggle to have their own, and countless other silenced voices, heard.
