The Scene Club Film Screening - My Brother The Devil
The Scene Club, the monthly film club that takes place in the Knowledge Village Auditorium is back this month with the critically acclaimed and award winning film My Brother The Devil by Sally El Hosaini.
The screening will take place on Wednesday, 6th November and actor James Floyed will be there for the Q & A session. Tickets are complimentary, but you must register in advance and collect your ticket at the venue.
I missed this at the last Dubai International Film Festival, so hoping I get a chance to watch it this week.
A masterful debut from one of England’s boldest and brightest new talents, Sally El Hosaini’s MY BROTHER THE DEVIL tells the story of two brothers tested loyalty as their paths collide amidst a violent world of drugs and gangs.
Rashid (James Floyd), a young man from a traditional Egyptian family, runs with a gang that rules the streets of Hackney, one of London’s most ethnically-mixed and historically volatile neighborhoods. Rashid’s younger brother, Mo, (Fadi Elsayed) idolizes his handsome, charismatic older brother and dreams of following in his footsteps, but Rashid envisions a different life for Mo and insists that he stay away from gang life and stick to his studies.
When Rashid forms a bond with Sayyid, an older man of similar background who is now a successful photographer, he is introduced to a world he never knew existed. But, just as he decides he wants out of his dead-end life on the streets, Mo decides he wants in and starts doing drug runs behind Rashid’s back.
Headed on a collision course of conflicting desires, each young man is forced to face himself and confront the brother he thought he knew.
