Ibrahim
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

DRAMA / FRANCE / 2021 / 79 MIN / 15+

This moving coming-of-age story about a young man trying to find his place in the world will strike a chord with anybody who has ever made a mistake and then yearned to make amends. After being selected last year by several prestigious film festivals – including Cannes, Telluride and Busan – the universal appeal of Ibrahim speaks to its power.

Ibrahim is a young man living in a housing project with his father, Ahmed, played by prolific French actor Samir Guesmi (In the Name of the Land, AF FFF20; Claire Darling, AF FFF19) who also makes his feature film debut as a director with Ibrahim. After Ibrahim takes part in a botched scam, Ahmed is left with a large debt, his career aspirations at risk and worst of all, a loss of respect for his son. Can Ibrahim make things right again?

Not afraid to reveal Ibrahim’s vulnerability underneath his withdrawn exterior, newcomer Abdel Bendaher is a revelation in the lead role, and a key part as to why Ibrahim is such an emotionally rewarding story about fathers and sons, and redemption.

Persons aged under 15 years must not be present at the relevant showing unless accompanied by an adult.
