'Three Veils' Film Released on DVD

Director Rolla Selbak's cinematic gem Three Veils has finally been released on DVD so, if you missed watching this movie during its theatrical release, you now have the chance of purchasing the official DVD (with extra features) for $21.95 plus shipping at

"Three Veils" is a film about three young Middle-Eastern women living in the U.S, each with her own personal story. Leila is engaged to be married, however as the wedding night approaches, she becomes less and less sure of how her life is playing out. Amira is a very devout Muslim, but is dealing with her deep repressions about her intimate feelings toward women. Nikki is acting out her promiscuity as she battles her own demons after a tragic death in the family. As the film progresses, all three stories unfold and blend into each other as connections are revealed between the three women.

Here are some pictures from the film's screening at the Roxie in San Francisco back in April of 2011.

"Three Veils" Movie Premiere at the Roxie in San Francisco

The movie Three Veils finished its initial bay area run by closing at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco on  April 10, 2011 to a sold out audience.  The screening, which was part of the San Francisco Women's Film Festival,  was followed by a Q & A session with the film's Director, Rolla Selbak, Producer Ahmad Zahra (Zahra Pictures), and actors Sheetal Sheth, Angela Zahra, and Garen Boyajian.

Superbly acted, written and executed, Three Veils is a poignant film that follows the stories of three young Middle-Eastern women living in the U.S, each with her own secret. As the three stories unfold, the lives of these three women intertwine as they each struggle to defy tradition and create their own realities.     My recommendation?  Don't miss this very daring, addictive and beautifully told story and run to the nearest theater in which it is screening; you won't regret it.  More on

Here is the film trailer, followed by exclusive pictures from the Q&A session that followed the San Francisco screening.  For a phone interview by Women's Radio with the film's director, Rolla Selbak, see!/8826.html
