LOVE’S IMPROVISATIONS is an original, contemporary feature that takes us through the ups and downs of a relationship, as Mira and Omar meet, fall in love, bond, and settle down in their marriage – their relationship ruled by Mira’s concept of love as dependent on meditation and storytelling, and her refusal to be governed by society’s norms. The director, Youssef El Deeb, is best-known as the founder of the highly popular Fatafeat TV channel – and lead actress Darine Khatib is its manager; here, they change tack from their ‘day jobs’ to deliver a bold, uncompromising film about modern-day relationships.
