About The Film
A gay Egyptian couple return from America for a family emergency. In this homophobic environment, their secret threatens to unravel under anxiety, unease, and suspicion that someone is using witchcraft to send them back.
About The Film
Hasan sets out with his wife Esra to take his sick father to the hospital. In this journey, the conflicts between father-son, husband-wife and daughter-in-law-father-in-law become more evident.
From Oct. 30 – Nov. 5, 2023, The Centre Film Festival will return for a weekend of the finest offerings in contemporary cinema at the State Theatre in State College and the Rowland Theatre in Philipsburg.
We are back to celebrate the magic of storytelling on the big screen and beyond. Join us in honoring multigenerational narratives and sparking meaningful conversations through art, locally and globally. With the historic Rowland Theatre and State Theatre as our backdrop, we’re getting all set to bring you more than 50 Pennsylvania Premieres, 4 United States Premieres, Made in PA films, a night of Thrills and Chills for Halloween, Sports on Screen, World Cinema, Pride on Screen, and an inaugural Indigenous Peoples Heritage Month track… and so much more.
