Behind The Door (Wara el-Bab), UK PREMIERE

Dir. Adham Elsherif

Egypt. 2013. 20min. Colour. Arabic with English subtitles.

A boy is left home alone with strict instructions from his severe mother, who warns that any transgression will summon the one-legged monster. With stunning cinematography and art direction, and a pace that allows the perception of his environment by a child to convincingly unfold, Behind the Door is a wonderful coming-of-age tale.

Adham Elsherif was born in Giza in 1988 and is a graduate of the Higher Cinema Institute in Cairo. His previous short “A Resident of the City” was screened at the Rotterdam Film Festival and was in competition at the Dubai Film Festival.
