In this debut feature by Sudanese filmmaker Amjad Abu Alala, a young man is haunted by a prophecy that his life will end as soon as he turns 20. Bullied by the children of the village and called ‘the son of death’, Muzamil finds himself torn between a desire to live and an acceptance of his looming death.

The screening on Thursday 23 September will feature a pre-recorded Q&A with director Amjad Abu Alala.
