Kooi (Cage)

In Development | Short Film

A short movie made
in context of
‘De Ontmoeting’

Omar (14) spends every day in an iron football cage with the boys from his neighbourhood. His group of friends is close, but they are also hard on each other. They constantly challenge each other and vulnerability is constantly punished. One day Omar’s younger brother Abdul wants to join them. He is startled by Abdul’s sudden aggression and tries to get him out of the cage. At the same time he begins to doubt the behaviour of his friends.
