Following the launch of the “Gin” series, Netflix recently launched the drama series “Al Rawabi School for Girls” directed by Jordanian director Tima Shomali. Extraneous and unreliable, and many felt that this series contributed to distorting the image. Jordanian community, is this realistic?

In addition to the decades-old sense of humorous structure in Jordanian drama, “Rawabi” consists of six chapters related to the life of Bedouin, which represents the inherent heritage of the Jordanian people. Their emotions, passion and modern vision of life, including the eternal struggle between good and evil within man.


The focus of the series revolves around the changes in adolescence life and the ideas that permeate it among women, and sheds light on the problems of this generation both explicitly and to avoid social problems. About being quiet in Arab communities in general.

The Rawabi series combines real events and drama, including fantasy, to address the idea of ​​bullying and retaliation within the school, which is already present in all communities, but the show allows the student community to express socially critical ideas.

She tells the story of the series. A student at school is subjected to bullying by other students. She prepares a plan to respond with a group of marginalized women and seek revenge on bullies. Author Abir is included in the revenge plan against “Reem Saade”; She did not give her the right to the bullying incident, she took a cold stand.

In the series, there is a screaming voice with a direction to show the inherent flaws in the narrow school community, which generally applies to Jordanian society, so issues such as bullying, insults, cursing, revenge and hatred are raised, as well as students’ psychological status, suicidal intentions and parental disability. Suppression of children in adolescence.

Another bad aspect appears in the form of harassment and words and movements in which women are harmed, which offends society, and puts pressure on the psychological state of the woman, while the series shows an evasive critique of the ruling regimes. Ability to control private companies, and guide them to serve narrow interest.

Joint characters

The conflict-dramatic idea between the protagonists is based on the polarization of ideas, because the characters are complex in the degree of self-contradictions placed in the personality, and exaggerated to its climax by the development of dramatic conflict. Revenge and Valor: “Noor Tahar as Lion, Jonah Arita as Rania, Raqeen, Saud as Nawf, Yara Mustafa as Dina, Fares al-Bahri as Ahmed, Samaya al-Azir, Andrea Taya as Maria, and one as Tema al-Somali’s screenplay.

The series moves to the point of revealing the character’s history of bullying with therapeutic intent when an indifferent father who commits immoral acts, according to the standards of Arab society, appears in her home as an oppressed, good woman. Comes from a middle class family, and lives a monotonous life.



The series presents Nawf as the character of “Rakin Chad” who bears the attributes of balance and does good by means of tools that are considered evil because they infiltrate the school system and spread the exams to the students ahead of time and do so in order to face difficulties properly. This complex, compassionate personality presents a social form that is acceptable to some, perhaps as it really is, but it does not imply the right moral philosophy. Nouf, with its harmonious charm, may have won the approval of the audience, but her self-creation has a different storm than the other heroines.

This kind of study of Arabic drama is a shock to the audience, in the light of a social system, once closed, prevents air from entering, where marginalized issues are the way to prevent disruption of social peace, but is this always an appropriate solution?

It is natural to say that the Rawabi series does not represent the reality of Jordanian or Arab society, but that this proposal reflects the message of art, capturing realistic material and turning it into a play; For the purpose of presentation, analysis and treatment, is it logical to say that the “rabbi” crossed the red line in addressing what was not said?
