Our life is an amalgamation of reality and imagination, therefore a film about life must contain the two elements, but how does one do this?” Director Mamdouh Afdile’s answer to this question is a fusion whereby the story and the storyteller become one, and the boundaries between reality and fantasy give way to a unique and vibrant image of life. The film Demons and Madness is an invitation to embark on a magical journey into Mamdouh Afdile’s amusing life. After painful disappointments in his career as a director, Mamdoh is forced to return to the city of Tyre where his family lives, to the place where people still believe in demons and witchcraft.
