Forbidden Lie$
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Anna Broinowski


Indiepix Films Forbidden Lie$ focuses on Norma Khouri who is a thief, a saint, a seductress and a sociopath – depending on who is talking. Khouri won fame and fortune with her “true story” Forbidden Love, about a shocking honor killing in Jordan. The book was a runaway bestseller, the book was translated into multiple languages and became the toast of the literary world. Until July 2004, when esteemed Sydney Morning Herald journalist Malcolm Knox exposed her book as a work of fiction, and her protagonist, a figment of her imagination. Now, Norma is fighting for her credibility and offers to go to Jordan to prove that Dalia indeed existed and that the incident in question really took place.
