You Will Die at 20

You Will Die at 20 Movie Poster

In a Sudanese village, a mother gives birth to Muzamil, a boy cursed by a Dervish prophecy that he will die at 20. Muzamil grows up surrounded by looks of sympathy, until Suleiman, acinematographer who has worked in the city, returns. Suleiman's cinema projector opens a window to a new world for Muzamil. In time, he comes to doubt the prophecy.

When his 20th birthday arrives, he is torn between death and a bus to the world he is eager to know about.

Director: Amjad Abu Alala
