Tunisian film 'Fatwa', that won a series of awards in various international events, including at the 2018 Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), will be screened this Sunday at Darb1718 in Cairo.
Directed by Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud, the 102-minute feature film, that was also funded by Belgium, follows Brahim Nadhour, a Tunisian living in France, who returns to Tunis to search for the reasons behind his son Marwan's death in an apparent motorcycle accident.
Nadhour's investigation reveals many unexpected facts about Marwan, including his connections with a radical Islamist group.
The film stars Ahmed Hafiene, Sarra Hannachi and well-known Tunisian singer and songwriter Ghalia Benali.
The film won the Saad Eldin Wahba Prize for Best Arab Film at CIFF in addition to many other international awards, including the Tanit d'Or and Best Actor Award (for Hafiene) at the Carthage Film Festival this year.
