MPM Premium Picks Up Firas Khoury’s ‘Alam’ Forward of Toronto Premiere

MPM Premium has picked up Firas Khoury’s coming-of-age drama “Alam,” forward of its world premiere on the Toronto Movie Competition.

The movie facilities on Tamer, a Palestinian teenager dwelling in Israel. He and his associates lead a typical high-school pupil’s life till the arrival of the attractive Maysaa ‘. To impress her, Tamer agrees to participate in a mysterious flag operation on the eve of Israel’s Independence Day, which is a day of mourning for Palestinians.

Toronto’s Nataleah Hunter-Younger stated of the movie: “A fluid and absorbing characteristic debut from Firas Khoury, ‘Alam’ is a coming-of-age drama full of up to date urgency. Skillfully declaring the unsubtle mechanisms of nationalism, Khoury attracts us via the maze of management and contradiction that follows the compelled forgetting of historical past.”

Khoury commented: “The movie is an try to deliver into mild the circumstances by which the Palestinian youth is compelled to develop, the sharp existential contradictions they’re subjected to at a younger age. In that sense, ‘Alam’ is a narrative of a collective, embodied within the lifetime of a younger man (Tamer), who needs to step out of the protected zone of passive worry into the sunshine of freedom. However as at all times, freedom doesn’t come with out sacrifice. Tamer will know freedom provided that he’s keen to pay the value.”

The movie is produced by MPM Movie, Paprika Movies, Philistine Movies, Purple Sea Movie Competition Basis, Metafora Productions and Lacydon Bay Productions.
