You will die at twenty

Alala, Amjad Abu

Winner of the Lion of the Future Award for Best Debut Feature at the Venice Film Festival, it is a visually sumptuous coming-of-death fable. During her son's naming ceremony, a Sheikh predicts that Sakina's child will die at the age of twenty. Haunted by this prophecy, Sakina becomes overly protective of her son Muzamil, who grows up knowing about his fate. As Muzamil escapes Sakina's ever-watchful eye, he encounters friends, ideas, and challenges that make him question his destiny.
