YELLOW MUMS


Directed by | Firas Khoury

Genre fiction  |  Length: 32mins  |  Year of production: 2010


In Firas Khoury’s award winning short drama, the young Nizar is a devout but introverted altar boy, often mocked by his peers for his quirky ways and sartorial “errors” (these include a tendency to combine socks with sandals). When Nizar joins the other children on an annual Easter egg hunt and traditional competition in the village, his religious faith inspires a surprising degree of competitiveness. But when Nizar uncovers a “fake egg”, his Christian convictions are challenged. Khoury’s beautifully photographed debut is a sensitive cultural comedy that will captivate audiences of all ages.
