Sharjah Art Foundation Film Screening - Traitors
Sharjah Art Foundation will be hosting a screening of Traitors by Sean Gullette on Saturday, 19th April at 8.30pm.
I watched this film last December at the Dubai International Film Festival and really liked it. And it also has a great soundtrack (lookout for "I’m So Bored with Morocco", a Moroccan version of "I'm So Bored with the USA" by The Clash sung by the lead actress Chaimae Ben Acha).
The free screening will take place in the outdoor Mirage City Cinema in the Sharjah Art Foundation Art Spaces. Earlier this month, I wrote about the current Sharjah Art Foundation exhibitions, so if you will go to watch the film, make sure you have a look at some of the exhibitions. There's some very good work there.
Malika is the leader of the all-female punk rock band Traitors, with a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier, and her place in it. When she needs money to save her family from eviction, and to realize her dreams for the band, Malika agrees to a fast cash proposition: a smuggling run over the mountains for a dangerous drug dealer.
But her companion on the road is Amal, a burnt-out young drug mule, who Malika decides to free from her enslavement to the dangerous drug dealers.
The challenge will put Malika's rebel ethos to the test, and to survive she will have to call on all her instincts and nerve.
