In the midst of a relentless heat wave, the Arab migrant Ashraf tries to pursue his work, but he is under constant surveillence by an unknown entity. Director Joyce A. Nashawati was awarded the International Federation of Film Critics for her debut mystery thriller, BLIND SUN. Addressing pressing themes of our time: migration, xenophobia, identity and lack of resources, BLIND SUN reeled in numerous honors at film festivals around the world. "Joyce Nashawati has managed to unfurl a dense drama on modern social dynamics, making for an impressive feature debut. The film engulfs the viewer in its suffocating atmosphere, while its crisp images blur the boundary between reality and paranoia." (Cinema Europa)
