Scales Review


Scales is a film made by Saudi Arabian filmmaker Shahad Ameen, which made it's American debut in 2021. It was Saudi Arabia's entry for the 2021 Academy Awards and it was shot on location in Khasab, Oman, an exclave that borders the United Arab Emirates and the shores of the Strait of Hormuz. I reviewed it for NPR.
