The Badia is a film centered around the complexities of language and cultural identity through the lens of Laura Khoury, a young Arab-American student. Having always felt like an outsider to her own culture, Laura decides to study abroad in rural Jordan in order to feel “more Arab.” In The Badia, we see Laura struggle to fit in with her host family, who quickly point out her American tendencies. As Laura pushes through the awkward language barrier, her idolized perceptions of Jordanian culture crumble when she is forced to differentiate between cultural misunderstandings and personal safety.
