Jean Wejnoon (Genies & Madness)

Directed by: Mamdooh Afdile
87 Minutes, 2011

An invitation to embark on a magical journey into the filmmaker’s amusing life – this film is a mixture of reality and imagination. Mamdooh Afdile is a recent film school graduate waiting for his big break. His brother has other plans for them. And his parents believe in ghosts and demons. This hysterically funny film is a wild ride inside one family’s lunacy. We follow the filmmaker as he comes to terms with his family’s demons and attempts to confront his own.
