Audition Description

Too often we view the world impaired by cultural and political blinders, media bias, and linear thinking. THE FESTIVAL offers a different perspective on familiar situations, encouraging lateral thinking toward fostering a broader view of the world.

​

The film centers on a college aged activist who has had enough. Confronted with the atrocities of an oppressive and unjust society, Yadallah takes change into his own hands. There is a time for talk, there is a time for prayer, and then there is a time for violence. How we interpret the violence against the backdrop of our own prejudices and notions of right and wrong completes the film.

​

The film is set in the modern-day United States, tackles highly charged and often uncomfortable issues of race, retribution, and justice, and is written with a multi-racial, multi-gender, multi-religious, and multi-generational cast. It will challenge your senses.
