The Gate of Departure
Directed by Karim Hanafy
The Gate of Departure tells the story of a mother and son, weaving images to depict a relationship of mutual unawareness and the struggle to reconnect. The film meditates on grief, death, and psychological entrapment, dispensing with dialogue and narrative in favor of a poetic visual experience.
