Lady Kul El Arab is a 2008 Israeli documentary directed by Ebtisam Mara'ana which tells the story of Doaa Fares, a Druze model who entered the Miss Israel beauty contest in 2007. This caused some resentment from Israel's Druze community, and she dropped out of the contest following threats for dishonouring her community and subsequent arrest of five people, among them two of her uncles, for planning her murder.
