Book Tickets

The paths of three cross-generational characters overlap and interconnect in Karim Moussaoui’s Until the Birds Return, an ambitious triptych that attempts to gauge the mood of contemporary Algerian society from multiple perspectives: a property developer who witnesses a crime; a young woman being driven to her wedding by a man with whom she has a history; and a neurologist who is possibly guilty of wartime wrongdoing. Moussaoui’s accomplished debut feature premiered to acclaim in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival.

This film is screening as part of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival 2018.
