The Damned Don’t Cry, dir. Fyzal Boulifa, France, Belgium, Morocco 2022, 111 min., Arabic, French with English Subtitles, 18.

Fatima-Zahra and her devoted but defiant son Selim are living on the poverty line, hustling for survival. Their close – albeit warped – bond is tested when Selim discovers a painful truth about his past, setting the duo on a path they can’t turn back from. An acutely observed domestic tale of love, identity and belonging.

After his critically acclaimed debut Lynn + Lucy, British-Moroccan filmmaker Fyzal Boulifa enhances his reputation with The Damned Don’t Cry, which had its world premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival. 

All films are ad-free and 18+ unless otherwise stated, and start with a 10 min. curated selection of trailers.
