You Will Die at Twenty

You Will Die at Twenty

During her son’s naming ceremony, a sheikh predicts that Sakina’s child will die at the age of twenty. Haunted by this prophecy, Sakina becomes overly protective of Muzamil, who is ever mindful of his fate. As Muzamil escapes Sakina’s ever-watchful eye, he encounters friends, ideas and challenges that make him question his destiny.

Winner of the Lion of the Future Award for Best Debut Feature at the Venice Film Festival and Sudan's first-ever Oscar Entry for Best International Feature, Amjad Abu Alala's YOU WILL DIE AT TWENTY is visually sumptuous “coming-of-death” fable that presents a moving meditation on what it means to live in the present.
