Samir Nasr's SHARAF captivated audiences at the 56th Hof International Film Festival. On Thursday, 26 January 2023, the film will finally be released in cinemas.
Sharaf is one of countless young men in the Arab world who hope for a better future. When he kills a man in self-defense and is sent to prison, his dreams of prosperity and a better future meet harsh reality.
"The film lives from its precise observations" and the director "...succeeds in creating tension without exploiting the serious background for cheap dramatizations." (Kino-Zeit). On the big screen, the film unfolds a particularly intense effect. A must-see!
