From acclaimed Egyptian filmmaker Sherif El Bendary comes the unique and surreal Egyptian comedy Ali, the Goat, and Ibrahim which scooped a Muhr Award for Best Actor Ali Sobhi at the 13th edition of DIFF where the film enjoyed its world premiere to praise from audiences and critics. In the not-to-be missed film, Ali falls in love with a goat, whom he names Nada. Ibrahim works at a recording studio and starts to hear voices that frighten him. Ali yields to his mother’s wish that he visit a healer, even though he doesn’t believe he is psychologically unstable. At the healer’s clinic, Ali meets Ibrahim. The healer diagnoses Ali and Ibrahim as “cursed” and prescribes a solution to break the spell; they must throw three “magic” stones in Egypt’s three water bodies. Ali, Ibrahim and Nada set off on an adventure that takes them to the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Nile in this touching tale of friendship, reconciliation, self-discovery and self-acceptance.
