SAFAR Film Festival: Feathers

13 July '22 at 5:45 pm - 14 July '22 at 7:30 pm

When a magic trick goes awry at a child’s birthday party, the authoritative father of a family gets turned into a chicken. The mother, whose mundane life was dedicated to her husband and children, is urged to come to the fore, moving heaven and earth to bring back her husband and secure their family’s survival.

Omar El Zohairy is an award-winning filmmaker from Egypt. Feathers, his debut fiction feature, was the first Egyptian film to be screened in the International Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was awarded the Grand Prize.

Screening at Manchester Home on Wednesday 13 July at 17:45, and Hull Independent Cinema on Thursday 14 July at 19:30.
