by Ayian C.
Sally El Hosaini’s My Brother the Devil is a triumphant film debut for this Egyptian-Welsh director. Shot entirely in her local neighborhood of Hackney in East London, My Brother the Devil is a touching and enthralling story of how the relationship of two Arab teenage brothers is put to the test as they struggle to find their individual identities amidst gangs, drugs, violence and prejudice in one of London’s most volatile areas.
Elegantly shot, with captivating characters and a story line written with great sensitivity, My Brother the Devil has won international critical acclaim including Best Cinematography, World Cinema Award at Sundance, and director Sally El Hosaini was awarded Best British Newcomer by the British Film Institute.
