DUBAI: Egyptian director Manal Khaled’s feature film “Trapped” is set to premiere at the US South by Southwest Festival, due to be held from March 16-20.
The film, directed and produced by Khaled, who co-scripted it with Egyptian writer Rasha Azab, focuses on a number of women from different walks of life who feel constrained by restrictions imposed on them by male figures in their lives.
“Trapped” stars Egyptian actors Caroline Khalil, Reem Higab and Osama Abo El Ata.
The festival, which will run online, will open with the world premiere of Michael Ratner’s “Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil,” a documentary about the pop singer’s near-fatal drug overdose in 2018.
The complete film program includes 75 features, including 57 world premieres, three international premieres, four North American premieres, one US premiere, eight Texas premieres, and 53 films from first-time filmmakers.
