Goodbye Julia


Set in the years prior to the separation of South Sudan, director Mohamed Kordofani’s GOODBYE JULIA is an engrossing exploration of female friendship across devastating divides. Kordofani's debut feature is the first Sudanese film to premiere at Cannes and the winner of this year’s Un Certain Regard - Freedom Prize.

Mona (Eiman Yousif), an upper-middle-class former popular singer from the North seeks to attenuate her feelings of guilt for causing the death of a Southern man by employing Julia (Siran Riak), his unsuspecting widow, as her maid. Unable to confess her transgressions, she decides to leave the past behind, unaware that the country’s turmoil may find its way into her home and put her face to face with her sins.
