Feathers (Omar El Zohairy, 2021) *2PM Matinee*
(Omar El Zohairy, 2021, 112 min, Egypt, Arabic w/ subtitles, Color, DCP)
When a magic trick goes awry at a children's birthday party, the authoritative father of the family turns into a chicken. An avalanche of coincidental absurdities befalls everyone; the mother, whose mundane life was dedicated to her husband and children, is now urged to come to the fore and take care of her family. While moving heaven and earth to bring her husband back and secure their survival, she goes through a total transformation.

"'Feathers' is fueled by a quiet, quaking fury at a social imbalance predicated on inequity, exploitation, and rigid male chauvinism." - Matthew Eng, Reverse Shot
