About the Film

 

In a Sudanese village, Muzamel is born readily cursed by a Dervish prophecy, stating that he will die at the age of 20. Muzamel grows up amongst looks of sympathy that make him feel dead before his time, until Suliman—a cinematographer who was working in the city—returns to the village. Suliman’s old cinema projector offers Muzamel a window overlooking a whole new world. When his 20th birthday arrives, he is faced with a choice between accepting impending death and a bus to the world he is eager to experience.
