Perfumed With Mint

Fall Grants 2021 - Production Stage

Muhammed Mahmoud Hamdy / Feature Narrative / Egypt, France, Qatar / 100 min / Original Language: Arabic


Lurking through their city’s remains, a band of old friends reunites in a nightmare. Mint sprouts out of their bodies, while photographs of people who lived there are scattered everywhere. Relentlessly chased by ruthless shadows, will the companions escape the maze, or will they endlessly hide in empty streets filled with memories?
