Cinema Akil, the independent cinema in the GCC, is screening French-Moroccan director Roschdy Zem’s Our Ties until March 26, 2023.
MAD Solutions recently released the film’s trailer on its social media platforms a few days after releasing its poster.
Previously, the film held its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival — where it competed for the Golden Lion Grand Prix — and its Arab World premiere in the 44th Cairo International Film festival’s International Panorama Section, and was commercially released in French theatres in November 2022.
Our Ties follows Moussa, who has always been kind, selfless, and there for his family; Unlike his brother Ryad, a high-profile TV presenter who is widely criticized for his egocentricity by those around him, with his only defender being Moussa, who admires him greatly.
When an accident befalls Moussa, causing him serious brain damage, he now speaks without any filter, telling the brutal truth to friends and family alike, leading all to resent him, except Ryad.
Our Ties — which was co-written by Maïwenn— stars Sami Bouajila, Roschdy Zem, Meriem Serbah, Maïwenn, and Rachid Bouchareb. Additionally, Julien Poupard served as its DOP, and it was edited by Pierre Deschamps.
The film was produced by Laziz Belkaï, with Wild Bunch International managing worldwide sales and MAD Solutions handling distribution in the Arab world.
