MY ENGLISH COUSIN
2001, Fahed arrives on UK soil overflowing with aspirations and dreams…
2018, in the thrall of a mid-life crisis, he must now make a decision. Will he continue his humble lifestyle working 50-hours weeks between the take-away and the factory, or will he return to Algeria, a country he fled in the hope of making a better life for himself?
On Saturday 17 July in the Festival’s closing talk, director Karim Sayad will speak with curator Rabih El-Khoury about the making of My English Cousin and how his film deals with migration, identity, and home. Find out more about this online event here.
Available to watch in the UK only from Sunday 11 July – Saturday 17 July
