Sudan’s official submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Int’l Feature Film (its first) is a visually stunning “coming-of-death” fable about a Sudanese boy who, as an infant, was prophesied to live for only two decades by the local holy man. Stigmatized by and ridiculed for this “curse” and sheltered by his over-protective mother, the child hesitates to embrace life even during the time he has.“An affecting work and an impressive first feature…Splendid visual design.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 102 min.
