Biography

Cherien Dabis est la fille d'un docteur palestinien et d'une Jordanienne. Elle grandit dans une petite ville de l'Ohio avec ses 4 sœurs et passe ses vacances en Jordanie. En 1991, lors de la Guerre du Golfe, certains habitants de la ville les menacent, son père perd la plupart de ses patients et les services secrets enquêtent sur la famille. Dabis décrit cette période de sa vie comme « traumatisante ».

Son premier film, Amerrika, est montré en 2009 à Sundance et au Festival de Cannes où il est remarqué.

En 2013, son film May in the Summer est montré à Sundance et sort. Elle le considère comme le pendant d'Amerrika.
