REinvent International Sales has boarded the Toronto world premiere “A Happy Day” directed by Hisham Zaman.
Zaman’s third feature, selected for TIFF Centerpiece, follows his earlier festival hits Before Snowfall and Letter To The King, which both won the Dragon award for Best Nordic Film in Goteborg.
In A Happy Day, three teenage friends stuck in a frozen, hopeless place come up with a plan to escape over the mountain to a world where their dreams can be fulfilled. But when one of them falls in love, their plan begins to unravel. Newcomers Salah Qadi, Ravand Ali Taha, Mohamed Salah, Sarah Aman Mentzoni star alongside Stig Frode Henriksen (Dead Snow) and Thea Sofie Loch Næss (The Last Kingdom).
