The Storyteller

Aswat: Voices of Arabia

Society & Culture

Danya Al Hamrani has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. In 2008, she and her business partner, Dania Nassif, started the production company, Eggdancer - the first company in Saudi Arabia,  to be owned and run by women.  Danya was instrumental in getting Anthony Bourdain, host of the series "No Reservations' to come to Saudi Arabia, thereby "shining a light on a place, people don't get to see much of." Eggdancer has produced their first long documentary "Rise: The Journey of Women in Saudi Arabia." Danya tells us her story.   Title music: Bells in the Wind by Daniel Birch (www.danielbirch.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution-Non Commercial 4.1 International (CC BY-NC 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ Animals are beautiful people - Warner Archive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1fqy3eY5q8&t=33s  Rise: The Journey of women in Saudi Arabia trailer: Eggdancer Productions
