SYNOPSIS
The film follows an Emirati family in Abu Dhabi, who temporarily hire the services of a British nanny to help them organize their six children’s daily activities and study schedules. This leads to resentment between the nanny and the children especially after changing their daily routines. The film reveals the details of the relationships and interactions between different cultures in one household, the extent to which an Emirati family can accept another culture, the family’s insistence on the commitment of British nannies to the customs and traditions of the UAE and Islam as far as raising children is concerned, and how a British nanny can adapt to her new work environment.

Quotes
“From British director Paul James Driscoll comes Nanny Culture, a truly original documentary that lifts the lid on the private yet rapidly expanding world of the professional nanny in the UAE.” The Upcoming - Sarah Sutton

“This is a film that is sure to pique the interest of cultural commentators, potential nannies and those families thinking of hiring their very own “Mary Poppins”.” The National - Kaleem Aftab

“Overall, Nanny Culture certainly merits a watch. It is both funny and educational, emotional and awkward.” The Edge - Mirek Gosney
