Emirati filmmaker Abdulrahman Al Madani has produced a short documentary film about the gamboo3a. "What hideous word," you may think and yes it is and I had no idea what a gamboo3a was until I watched Abdulrahman's short film. The gamboo3a is a creation by women which is a somewhat large object placed inside a veiled women's head to give the illusion of a cone-head and for some bizarre reason, women step out in public with a gamboo3a with the utmost confidence which can start one hell of a debate.

Abdulrahman Al Madani has taken all of this and made a short film about the odd head piece. Interviews with students, the process of putting it on, and all the unbelievable objects that women use to get the look.
