Join Us on November 19th – Calgary Arab Film Festival Major Egyption Films Double Feature


Feathers by Omar El Zohairy, Winner of the Grand Prize at Semaine De La Critique in Cannes.

The Calgary Arab Arts & Culture Society is proud to open the Calgary Arab Film Nights Festival with the award winning Egyptian drama, Feathers by Omar El Zohairy.

When a magic trick goes awry at a children’s birthday party, the authoritative father of the family turns into a chicken. An avalanche of coincidental absurdities befalls everyone; the mother, whose mundane life was dedicated to her husband and children, is now urged to come to the fore and take care of her family. While moving heaven and earth to bring her husband back and secure their survival, she goes through a total transformation.

  • Winner of the Grand Prize at Semaine De La Critique in Cannes
  • Winner of the Gouna Star For Best Arab Narrative Feature
