You Will Die at 20 + Short + Q&A Event
Amjad Abu Alala | Sudan 2019 | 1h45m | Arabic with English subtitles
Winner of the best debut feature at Venice, Amjad Abu Alala’s moving, beautiful and deeply personal drama finds a metaphor for Sudan’s fight for democracy in the struggles of one individual. When Muzamil was born, a prophecy by the holy man of the village predicted that he will die when he turns 20. How can he live and love under a death sentence? His father leaves, his mother, Sakina, raises him as a single mother. Muzamil is in a limbo, defined by compliance with his destiny until he finds a father figure with a broader view of the world in cinephile Sulaiman.
This feature will be accompanied by short film Serotonin.
*It will also be recorded and uploaded to our Vimeo page within 24 hours of the event.
