It was supposed to be just a plain Ladies Night but after having 6 of the wonderful ladies ranging from engineer to businesswomen to entrepreneurs plus myself we all agreed to change it to “Life Group”. From the originally planned timing of 1 hour by the time we separated, we realized that we spent over 3 hours of fun, ideas, pain, and laughter.
For me as a filmmaker, it was a wonderful night of research on how women really think and feel as one by one they tell their stories through the questionnaires they took from the draw, their ideas, their hopes, and their rich experiences in life.
It was my first time to sit in with 6 ladies most on the prime time of their life, and yet as if they were just talking about their Barbie dolls or their high school escapades with lots of laughter, pains, and disappointments, and yet at the same time one can feel their strength and courage in facing their present circumstances.
I have finished at least 3 films in my mind for that short 3 hours of discussions particularly on the subject of mixed marriage, start up business, love, and relationship, I’d like to capture them one by one on their wonderful stories of struggles, their hardships, and successes.
After the wonderful Iftar dinner and the great service of AL ERZAL RESTAURANT, we said our goodbyes and we gained friends, and somehow look at our life in a new and exciting perspective.
But for me, one of my greatest take home last night was the 3 films I made in my mind, and I look forward to writing them and hopefully canned them, and share to you the wonderful stories of these wonderful ladies in our LIFE GROUP.
