Becoming Omer Khairy
Alyaa Musa, Sudan
The extraordinary art and remarkable lives of the Sudanese visionary artist, Omer Khairy and his alter ego George Edward (1939-1999), remain treasured yet a mystery even for those who surrounded his timid presence and his audacious artwork. Two Sudanese filmmakers embark on a wondrous journey to recover and uncover Khairy/Edwards great work and remarkable life stories.
