My Brother the Devil at BFI London Film Festival

This week’s BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL featured a new British movie MY BROTHER THE DEVIL (Dir. Sally El Hosaini 2012). The film, on which Mamoun provided editing consultancy, is set in gangland London and stars fresh new actors James Floyd and Fady Elsayed as young British Arab brothers.

The story has struck a chord with young audiences world wide including those at the FILMS FROM THE SOUTH festival in Oslo, where Mamoun saw the film last week while visiting with ANDRES WOOD (Andres’ recent film VIOLETA WENT TO HEAVEN appeared at both festivals).

The relevant and controversial themes are reminiscent of the incendiary film BABYLON (1981 Dir. Franco Rosso) funded under Mamoun’s watch as the Managing Director of the National Film Finance Corporation, the  UK’s government arm for investing in feature production and development.
