The tale of Nawwara - in its Arabic universal poetic symbols - is simple yet magical. It is a dazzling tale interlaced with Arabic/oriental magic.
“Nawwara” is a highly visual and fantastic narrative tale that unveils the magical adventures of a 13-year-old girl with a heroic role to play in a constantly disturbed area of the world.
Like in all magical tales, Nawwara’s story is told through a narrator, an ancient Arab manuscript, secretly hidden for a thousand years and more in Nawwara’s house at the center of a desolate desert.
‘The Journey of Nawwara” recounts the story of a nation that has lost its golden compass although not it’s glow and is directed both to young adults and adults.
Author and artist Mimosa Al Arawi wrote Nawwara’s tale as a poetically narrated art work where reality and imagination combine to intensely connect fantasy with authenticity and words with images.
