Actor/musician Riz Ahmed is the co-writer, producer, and star of this energetic passion project, which he has called “the most personal work I’ve ever made.” Ahmed plays Zed, a British-Pakistani rapper on the cusp of his big break, a high-profile slot on a major European tour. But while visiting his conservative Muslim family in suburban London, Zed undergoes a sudden medical trauma that derails his plans and forces him to reckon with his fractured cultural identity. Capitalizing on his parallel career as an MC, polymath Ahmed gives it his all in a staggering performance that “affirms his standing as one of Britain’s most vital, risky actors” (Variety). Nominated for Best British Film of the Year at the BAFTAs (the UK Oscar equivalent) and winner of a critic’s prize at the Berlin Film Festival. “Culturally rich and emotionally raw, Mogul Mowgli is a brilliant showcase for Riz Ahmed’s bevy of talents, and speaks visceral truth to the British-South Asian experience so rarely explored on screen” (Empire). “Blistering. Ahmed is in career-best form” (Time Out). (MK)
