Suicide Candidates Film
Hamzah Atifi | Morocco 2019 | Arabic, with English Subtitles | 19m | 15
In this unique futurescape, the marginalised and impoverished are targeted by government-sponsored suicide initiatives that encourage sacrifice for the greater good. Whether the true horror lies in the acceptance of such horror or the impact it has on those involved, this weave of dark humour and technical brilliance is an original insight into the thin border between utopia and dystopia. With excellent performances between the bedraggled Larbi and the chillingly distant Afaf.
This film is screening as part of the Short Film Competition.
