Queer Arab Lives: My Brother the Devil

Sun 9 December 2018

A life of crime for Hackney gang member, Rash, looks set to change after a chance meeting with a successful photographer shows him a more honest existence away from drugs and fast cash. However, as he looks for a way out of the game, younger brother Mo is chancing for a way in. The teenage brothers must come to terms with their racial and sexual identities while navigating gang violence in Welsh-Egyptian writer-director Sally El Hosaini’s cinematic debut.

Curated by Samar Ziadat in partnership with Dardishi, a zine and Festival of Arab womxn’s art.

Film in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available.

Film relies on visual material to convey ideas but has a lot of explanatory dialogue, so is relatively accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact access@sqiff.org.

We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact access@sqiff.org.
