SHERIF EL BENDARY

Book Tickets

Ali is in love with a (possibly psychic) goat, called Nada. Ibrahim works at a recording studio and suffers from terrifying voices in his head. Ali yields to his mother’s wish that he visit a healer’s clinic where he meets Ibrahim.

The healer diagnoses both as ‘cursed’ and prescribes a solution to break the spell: they must throw three stones into Egypt’s three water bodies. Ali, Ibrahim and Nada head off on a picaresque adventure that takes them to the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Nile in this touching tale of friendship, reconciliation and self-discovery.

The film is screening as part of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival 2017.
