Interviews AfrikaFilm Festival 2022 - Nejib Belkhadi about COMMUNION

It’s March 2020, and a pandemic is spreading around the world. Kais and Sarra, along with their cat, are trying to adapt to the new normal. Sarra works in the humanitarian sector. She helps people in distress. The pandemic hasn’t helped their situation. Kais has psychosis and has to take his medication regularly. As the days go by, Kais changes more and more. Director Nejib Belkadhi, in the lead role of Kais, uses the lockdown to examine a completely different kind of isolation, that of schizophrenia. Taking the form of a black and white thriller, COMMUNION is a testimony to this period as well as an interrogation of today’s world.
