Two women forge an unusual friendship across devastating divides in an engrossing Sudanese drama.
Wracked by guilt after covering up a murder, Mona — a northern Sudanese retired singer in a tense marriage — tries to make amends by taking in the deceased’s southern Sudanese widow, Julia, and her son, Daniel, into her home.

DIVERTIMENTO
DIVERTIMENTO
Dir. Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar | 2023 | France | 110 mins| Rated CTC

Inspired by the life of Zahia Ziouani, one of the few worldwide renowned female conductors.
DIVERIMENTO is the orchestra created by 17 year old Algerian, Zahia Ziouani, unique in it's diversity and composition, integrated into the elite world of Parisian classical music.

Classical symphonic music is everything for 17-year-old Zahia Ziouani and her twin sister, Fettouma. Nevertheless, living in underprivileged Parisian suburbs in 1995 with their Algerian background, they struggle arduously to approach their dreams – becoming an orchestra conductor and a cellist. Driven by determination, passion, and courage, they create their own orchestra, Divertimento.
It will be a game-changer.
