When a magic trick goes awry at a children’s birthday party, the authoritative father of the family turns into a chicken. The mysterious transformation sets the family off to a tragically funny adventure of self-discovery to survive without the patriarch. The mother (Demyana Nassar), whose life was dedicated to her husband and children, is now urged to come to the fore. While moving heaven and earth to bring her husband back and secure the survival of her children, she goes through a total transformation. Feathers is a tale of scathing social satire, wry laughter and unsettling oddity. The film had its world premiere during the 2021 Critics’ Week of the Cannes Film Festival, winning the Grand Prize.
