Although long since cured, Beshay has never left the leper colony in the Egyptian desert where he has lived since childhood; but when his wife dies, he decides to go in search of his roots. With his donkey cart and a Nubian orphan called Obama, he crosses Egypt in search of the reasons why he was abandoned as a child – and a place to belong …
Abu Bakr Shawky’s comedy adventure shows as part of CineMAS, a short indie-oriented film festival at Manarat al Saadiyat (16-20 April) which has arrived with little fanfare. CineMAS promises “a carefully curated selection of the best under-the-radar short ﬁlms, documentaries, comedies and dramas” plus a chance to meet the people behind these cinematic experiences.
The film shows again at 3pm on 18 April.
