You Will Die at Twenty

Rated 18+

By Amjad Abu Alala, 103 min, Drama, in Arabic with English subtitles, Sudan, France, Egypt, Germany, Norway, Qatar, 2019

When searching for a blessing on the day of her firstborn’s naming ceremony, a mother is instead foretold a curse: her son, Muzamil, will die at the age of 20. Muzamil’s father cannot stand the doom and travels away from home. Sakina raises alone her son with over protection. Growing up under the constant loom of death, Muzamil finds friends, enemies, love and tempters, though what he truly seeks is a sense of the present and a belief in the future.

The film has won several awards including: Luigi de Laurentiis Award at Venice Film Festival 2019, Golden Star at El Gouna Film Festival 2019, Best Screenplay at Carthage Film Festival 2019, Golden Unicorn for Best Feature Film at Amiens Film Festival 2019, Audience Award at Ajyal Film Festival 2019, Best Feature Film at Rabat Film Festival 2019 and participated at the International Competition of Mumbai Film Festival 2019.
