Yomeddine: dir Abu Bakr Shawky (2018)

17 April 2019 @ 7.30 pm - 9.30 pm

AED 30

Although long since cured, Beshay has never left the leper colony in the Egyptian desert where he has lived since childhood; but when his wife dies, he decides to go in search of his roots. With his donkey cart and a Nubian orphan called Obama, he crosses Egypt in search of the reasons why he was abandoned as a child – and a place to belong …

Abu Bakr Shawky’s comedy adventure shows as part of CineMAS, a short indie-oriented film festival at Manarat al Saadiyat (16-20 April) which has arrived with little fanfare. CineMAS promises “a carefully curated selection of the best under-the-radar short films, documentaries, comedies and dramas” plus a chance to meet the people behind these cinematic experiences.

The film shows again at 3pm on 18 April.
