Director's bio
Mohamed Kordofani is a Sudanese filmmaker whose short film Nyerkuk won the Black Elephant Award for Best Sudanese Film, NAAS Award for Best Arab Film at the Carthage Film Festival, Jury Award at the Oran International Arab Film Festival, and Arnone-Belavite Pellegrini Award at the FCAAA in Milan. His second short Kejers Prison was screened during the Sudanese revolution at the sit-in square in front of thousands of protesters, and his documentary A Tour in Love Republic was the first pro-revolution film to be broadcast on Sudan’s national TV. His latest work was the film This Sudan, which was commissioned by Sudan’s former prime minister Abdallah Hamadok to promote Sudan’s potential for investment.
Wracked by guilt after covering up a murder, Mona, a northern Sudanese retired singer in a tense marriage, tries to make amends by taking in the deceased’s southern Sudanese widow, Julia, and her son, Daniel, into her home. Unable to confess her transgressions to Julia, Mona decides to leave the past behind and adjust to a new status quo, unaware that the country’s turmoil may find its way into her home and put her face to face with her sins.
