Raven Song (KSA 2022)

27 May, 2023

Show Ended

In his debut feature, Saudi filmmaker Mohamed Al Salman explores the tragicomic and surreal world of Nasser (Asem Alawad), a young man recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. In an unexceptional washout, he encounters an enigmatic and peculiar young woman. Infatuated by her and sick of being a failure, he must quickly figure out what he wants to do in life before he passes through risky surgery. He tries to reach out to the young woman in the most seductive way: a song. 

The Raven Song premiered globally at the Red Sea Film Festival last December, and it was also selected to officially represent Saudi Arabia at the 2023 Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Film category. The film is being screened at the Cinema Hall as part of the Arab Film Showcase, which features the latest independent Arab films.
