'Jareedy' is a magical-realist story that evokes the traditions of Nubia. The allegory is told through Konnaf, a young boy who must face and overcome a lifelong fear of water. His goal is to reach a rock in the middle of the Nile by Jareedy, a type of boat common to the banks on which he lives. His internal struggles lead him to friendships and challenges. Directed by Mohamed Hisham.
