When a Moroccan teenager in Amsterdam is radicalized, she marries a jihadist and joins an Islamist cell in the Middle East, but she finds there are other prejudices, too.
Planet X Title Design created the title sequence for this engaging film. We placed the titles on the right, which refers to the reading direction of the Arabic script. The background is black, only through the letters you see a picture as if you see the world through a veil. At the same time, this filling of the letters reflects to Arabian decoration. The titles sequence starts at the top and fade in every time a line lower. Just like Layla who is going deeper into what seems a nightmare. In a minimalist and abstract way, we show the story of the film in a typographic way.
