Celebrated short-firm director Sherif El Bendary’s feature debut will screen at DIFF365@VOX starting from June 29th

Dubai, 21 June 2017: Extending its distinct lineup of independent films in a truly global cinema flavor, the independent cinema initiative - DIFF365@VOX powered by du - chooses Egyptian cinema as its next destination by bringing to the audiences Sherif El Bendary’s moving feature debut, Ali, the Goat, and Ibrahim.

Ali, the Goat, and Ibrahim, tells a touching story that follows Ali, who refuses to accept the death of his beloved girlfriend and believes her soul has been reincarnated in the form of a goat. Elsewhere, Ibrahim is followed by haunting voices which control his world. With both young men marginalized and misunderstood by society, they encounter one another and embark on a cleansing journey. As their friendship grows, they realize they can find strength from within each other and embrace their differences.

Exclusive to DIFF 365@VOX, the Egyptian curious buddy-trip drama, supported by Dubai Film Market’s Enjaaz programme, made its world premiere at the 13th Dubai International Film Festival earning Egyptian actor Ali Sobhy the Muhr feature award for his performance in the film. The film was also screened at Cannes Junior Screenings during 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Ali, the Goat, and Ibrahim will screen at the dedicated theatre (cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai from June 29th until July 12th 2017. Tickets are available online at the VOX website and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.
