"Goodbye Julia" opens the 14th Malmö Arab Film Festival

Malmo – March 12, 2024

Malmo Arab Film Festival (MAFF) has announced the selection of the film “Goodbye Julia” by Sudanese director Mohamed Kordofani as the opening film for the festival’s 14th edition, scheduled to take place from April 22nd to April 28th, 2024.

The film, written and directed by Mohamed Kordofani, is a co-production involving Sudanese, Swedish, German, Saudi, French, and Egyptian collaborators. It stars Eiman Yousif, Siran Riak, and Nazar Goma. The storyline unfolds in the period shortly before the secession of South Sudan, where a former singer from the North seeks to alleviate her guilt after causing the death of a man from the South, by appointing his wife as her maid. The film also participates in the competition of feature films at the festival.

“Goodbye Julia” made its world premiere last May at the Cannes International Film Festival, competing in the Un Certain Regard category. The film was awarded the Development Award at MAFF Industry Days 2021 and has received numerous accolades during its screenings worldwide.
