Film: Feathers (Omar El Zohairy, 2021)
September 24, 2022 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEthjY2LlMk&feature=emb_titleSponsored by Cinematic Arts and Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke“‘Feathers’ is fueled by a quiet, quaking fury at a social imbalance predicated on inequity, exploitation, and rigid male chauvinism.” – Matthew Eng, Reverse Shot View trailer:
