Opening Night

Sponsored by PCC Cascade ASPCC

Amjad Abu Alala’s astonishing first feature film tells the wondrously strange story of a young man named Muzamil, who receives a curse at birth that he will die at the age of 20. The film explores the powerful hold that outdated beliefs and traditions have on people’s lives and how, in Muzamil’s case, they prevent him from embracing and fully living the 20 years of life he has been granted. It is Sulaiman, a man the villagers despise as a drunk and sinner, who saves Muzamil by opening his eyes and mind to a whole new world of possibilities and ways of thinking.

In Arabic with English subtitles.
