Cinefòrum: My Brother the Devil

My Brother the Devil

Casal Lambda hosts 'My Brother the Devil' (UK, 2012), director Sally El Hosaini's film debue, which, with great respect, shows the difficulties of accepting homosexuality in such a hostile environment as a London working-class neighbourhood dominated by drugs, social exclusion and violence. The story is of Mo, a teenager brought up in a traditional Egyptian family, but outside the modest flat where he lives with his parents and older brother there's a whole different world: the streets of Hackney. Mo idolizes his brother, Rashid, a charismatic member of a local gang, and wants to follow in his footsteps. The film is shown in its original language (English) with subtitles in Spanish/Catalan. A discussion follows the screening.
