North American première
Many would go to great lengths to obtain an American visa. Some enter lotteries, others get married. In this bold and entertaining satire, an Egyptian couple come up with what they believe to be ‘the perfect plan’: give birth at the American Embassy. Unfortunately, things go terribly wrong from the get go. With the current controversies over US immigration and refugees in Europe, this film feels very ‘of the moment’.
Induced Labor premiered at the 2017 edition of the Dubai International Film Festival.
