Fatima Al-Banawi visits Google to discuss her career and her project entitled The Other Story, a collection of real life stories and personal narratives from locals and visitors to her hometown of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. These collections enter the social arena through storytelling to highlight our shared humanity and to record the eclectic voices of a specific place and time in history.

Fatima Al-Banawi is an internationally acclaimed actress, filmmaker, and writer with a masters degree from Harvard university. She believes in the power of storytelling as a way to channel vulnerable and intimate conversations, which helped her to earn the title of the 2018 Next Generation Leader by Time Magazine. In 2016, she became internationally recognized for her debut in the award winning Saudi feature film, Barakah Meets Barakah, which helped pave the way for Saudi Arabian cinema.
