Filmstill You Will Die at Twenty


Since his childhood, Muzamil has been living with a disturbing prophecy: he is to die at the age of 20. Muzamil’s mother has since tried to shield the boy from all dangers and to educate him to a pious life. But Muzamil longs for freedom and self-determination.

In his debut film, which is dedicated to the victims of the recent protests in Sudan, Amjad Abu Alala combines a coming-of-age story with the expectation of imminent loss and thus also explores the situation in his home country.

26. Africa Alive Festival

The 26th edition of the Africa Alive Festival presents a broad spectrum of documentaries, feature films and short films from the African continent at our cinema. At other venues there will be concerts, readings, a panel discussion and a children’s programme.

In light of current events, this year the festival focuses on Sudan, a country where film culture was suppressed for many years and has only recently begun to develop again. In addition to current films, we will screen two historical short film programmes and films by pioneer Gadallah Gubara. We are excited to be able to welcome Talal Afifi (curator and festival director) and actors of YOU WILL DIE AT TWENTY from Sudan, as well as Mamadou Dia from Senegal, who will present BAAMUM NAFI. We are also looking forward to the French-Tunisian director Hind Meddeb, who will present her documentary film PARIS STALINGRAD in person at our cinema.
