Event description

Description

An inspirational drama inspired by the incredible, true story of Mohammad Assaf, winner of ARAB IDOL™ 2013

A lack of real instruments doesn’t stop honey-voiced ten-year-old Mohammed and his sassy sister, Nour (with whom he shares a deep bond, a tiny bedroom and an obsession with music), from performing wherever and whenever they can with their makeshift band.

It’s Nour who recognises the true potential of her brother’s talent, and makes him promise to share his gift with the world. A decade later, Mohammed, now a college student and part-time cab driver, ventures on a journey beset with seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fulfil his promise.

"Like its protagonist, “The Idol” finds a sense of identity, hope and pride within a landscape of grim dispossession and fatalism." The Washington Post.

Film rating: PG (V)
