Too often we view the world impaired by cultural and political blinders, media bias, and linear thinking. THE FESTIVAL offers a different perspective on familiar situations, encouraging lateral thinking toward fostering a broader view of the world.



The film centers on a college aged activist who has had enough. Confronted with the atrocities of an oppressive and unjust society, Yadallah takes change into his own hands. There is a time for talk, there is a time for prayer, and then there is a time for violence. How we interpret the violence against the backdrop of our own prejudices and notions of right and wrong completes the film.



The film is set in the modern-day United States, tackles highly charged and often uncomfortable issues of race, retribution, and justice, and is written with a multi-racial, multi-gender, multi-religious, and multi-generational cast. It will challenge your senses.
