Within the Competition of Long Films for Youth
Sukkar Mor Contends at Festival International du Film pour l'enfance et la Jeunesse de Sousse
Hany Khalifa's film Sukkar Mor will be part the 11th edition of Festival International du Film pour l'enfance et la Jeunesse de Sousse (the international festival of film for youth and children of Sousse) (21-26 March) within the competition of Long Films for Youth.
Produced by Manz Pictures of Dr. Mohamed Manzour, Sukkar Mor is directed by Hani Khalifa and is written by Mohammed Abd Elmoaty. The film stars Ahmed Al Fishawy, Haitham Ahmed Zaki, Ayten Amer, Shery Adel, Nahed El Sebai, Amina Khalil, Nabil Issa, Karim Fahmy, Omar El Saeed, and Sarah Shahin.
Sukkar Mor revolves around several characters witness unexpected dramatic changes due to certain incidents in their lives. Others remain the same unchanged no matter how difficult are the hardships they face. Some relationships may seem perfect on the surface, yet deep down this perfection may be the reason behind their failure. At the same time, some relations may seem impossible, but they last forever for illogical reasons. Five years of political and social turmoil reflected on the romantic attachments that were supposed to end happily ever after. Despite all odds, everyone still has hope for this New Year, because no one can really predict the future.
Festival International du Film pour l'enfance et la Jeunesse de Sousse is one of the distinguished Tunisian events dedicated to cinema for children and youth. The festival includes an international competition for the feature-length films for children and youth, in addition to a competition of short films for children and youth and a national competition for Tunisian films.
