Elia Suleiman says "film is supposed to promote some potential reality."

The renowned Palestinian filmmaker enjoys mentoring young talents and his passion for the seventh art is changing the landscape of modern Arab cinema, thanks to his collaboration with the Doha Film Institute.

Just who is this mystery man holding a bucket over his head?

Hint: He was a jury member this year at Berlinale. But for the full 411 you'll have to check out Nina's interview. Click on the image. 

Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan

Liev Schreiber on fame, being called "Ray!" on the street and his 10 minutes of madness.

The actor smoldered as usual at Berlinale this year while he helped promote Wes Anderson's next, 'Isle of Dogs' where he lends his voice to Spots, the lost, stoic bodyguard dog.

But in Venice last year, Nina asked the man with the spellbindingly blue eyes to disclose a few things about himself. 

Claes Bang

There is something powerfully magnetic about this Danish actor whose film was nominated for a Foreign Language Oscar.

Find out his inner thoughts and the one word he'd use to describe himself to someone who doesn't know him, from this exclusive sit-down with Nina in Dubai.


Ana Lily Amirpour

Ana Lily Amirpour was pitch perfect with her “a cannibal falls in love with his next meal.”

When Nina sat down with the talented, visionary filmmaker to interview her about her award-winning 'The Bad Batch', it was a lot like BFFs catching up on their lives.

'The Private Life of a Modern Woman', in America.

Before Hollywood rediscovered the existence of its casting couch system, legendary director and writer James Toback sat with Nina at the Venice Film Festival to talk about filmmaking and his extraordinary new work starring Sienna Miller. A film that explains so much about surviving as a woman in modern day America.

Samuel L. Jackson is a phenomenal man.

Nina caught up with the legendary actor in Dubai and he disclosed the movie line he gets most often repeated back to him... It involves fast food. 

Guy Martin on Hondros, Tim Hetherington and the Libya attacks.

“I don’t want to be defined by it, by that thing.” Almost killed in an ambush in 2011, photojournalist Martin talked to Nina during Pitti Uomo. Could photographing fashion's front row really be that much different from capturing life at the frontline? 

With a new film out on Chris Hondros, this interview helps to understand why these men risk life every day to bring the truth of the image to us.

Jim Carrey in Venice

Jim Carrey touched down to earth at the Venice Film Festival. And then, he was off again. 

During a leisurely conversation one afternoon on the Lido in Venice, Jim Carrey spoke calmly and insightfully about being a human being. He conquered all our hearts, those of us lucky enough to be in his presence and the resulting interview is one I will always cherish deeply. Then, a few days later, the Carrey we all know and love to laugh with returned and the insanity was once again among us. 

Jake Gyllenhaal, the 'Okja' interview from Cannes.

While in Cannes to promote Bong Joon Ho's 'Okja', Jake Gyllenhaal opened up like never before about his parents divorce, what makes him comfortable (hint it could involve bubbles... or not) and why there is no better time to be in America than now. Right now.
