On Thursday Laika transforms into a mini-cinema as they screen the short film Mala Min, by Alicia Lundahl and Agri Ibrahim. Mala Min is a film that has its roots in Ibrahim’s story as a second-generation immigrant, feeling dislocated from both the country he grew up in due to his background, and in his parents’ homeland Kurdistan due to the fact that he’s too European to fit in. Neither feels exactly like home, which prompts him to think about his identity and sense of belonging. The film sees him explore these questions by embarking with Lundahl (Lundahl shoots and edits the film with Ibrahim as writer and narrator) on a two-week trip to and through Northern Africa. The seven-minute film will be show at Laika on Thursday at 22:00, with English subtitles. Music outside of the film comes from Beniwasta, Hanna Petterson and Ramadonna.
