Omar El Zohairy‘s darkly humorous debut feature, FEATHERS wins the Grand Prize at this year’s Semaine de la Critique.
The film follows the journey of a mother when a magic trick goes awry at a children’s birthday party and the authoritative father of the family turns into a chicken. An avalanche of coincidental absurdities befalls everyone; the mother, whose mundane life was dedicated to her husband and children, is now urged to come to the fore and take care of her family. While moving heaven and earth to bring her husband back and secure their survival, she goes through a total transformation.
“Omar El Zohairy’s darkly humorous debut feature is a film of biting social satire, wry chuckles and unsettling oddity” Screendaily
