Oscilloscope Laboratories released the official trailer for Sirens the documentary on Middle East’s first all-female metal band as they wrestle with friendship, sexuality and destruction in their pursuit of becoming thrash metal rock stars.

Shot and directed by LA-based filmmaker Rita Baghdadi, the film, an official selection of Sundance Film Festival, and winner of Grand Jury Prize at Outfest, opens in theaters on September 30, 2022.

On the outskirts of Beirut, Lilas and her bandmates, Shery, Maya, Alma and Tatyana (Slave to Sirens), have big dreams but few opportunities. When the band’s appearance at a UK music festival isn’t the life-changer they had hoped for, Lilas comes home to Lebanon on the brink of collapse. At the same time, the complicated relationship between Lilas and her fellow guitarist Shery starts to fracture. The future of her band, her country and her dreams now all at stake, Lilas faces a crossroad. She must decide what kind of leader she will be, not only for her band, but also as a young woman struggling to define herself in Lebanon, a country as complex as each of the Sirens themselves.
