Best Screenplay winner at Cannes 2022, Maha Haj’s Mediterranean Fever explores masculinity and mental health with considerable warmth and gentle humour.

Set amongst the Arab community in the Israeli city of Haifa, this darkly comic feature follows the unlikely friendship of Waleed, an aspiring writer suffering with chronic depression, and Jalal, a low-level crook. As the pair become closer, we learn that they may have more in common than they first thought… and that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Encouraging the audience into a psychoanalysis of the film’s themes, Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society Andrea Sabbadini will be introducing the film, before leading a discussion following the feature.
