This comedy shines a light on the UAE's nanny culture

If at any point in your life your evenings comprised of endlessly binging on episodes of Supernanny or re-watching Mary Poppins for the umpteenth time, you’re in for a bit of a treat. This could be your next obsession.

Nanny Culture is a window into the life of a British nanny who relocates to the UAE to look after the children of an Emirati family - we should mention there’s six of them… and they’re aged between 2 and 13. Popcorn with a side of chaos? Yes, please.

The documentary (and part mockumentary), presents a comical view of nannies and the families they work for through following the many mishaps on their road towards social harmony.

Nanny Culture was produced by none other than Sheikha Alyazia Bint Nahyan Al Nahyan’s Abu Dhabi-based company Anasy Media, and has won a number of awards. It has also been picked up by several film festivals, from Canada to Ireland.

Although initially released worldwide in 2016, the documentary has only just been released in the UAE with a screening at VOX cinemas, Abu Dhabi. Better late than never, eh?
