When a magic trick on a children’s birthday party goes wrong, the father of the house is permanently transformed into a chicken. Henceforth the mother must provide for the family – but in Egypt’s patriarchal society there are hurdles erected for her all the time. Omar El Zohairy’s debut feature, winner of the Critic’s Week in Cannes, is a cinematic miracle: With laconic humour worthy of Aki Kaurismäki, he tells a subversively feminist story in dystopian, haunting images.
