Event Description

After Love
Complex + Subtle + Intimate
Director: Aleem Khan
UK 2020 90 mins

Mary Hussain is a sixty-two-year-old English Muslim convert who suffers an identity crisis after her husband, Ahmed, dies unexpectedly of a heart attack and she discovers his secret past.

A powerful debut from British Pakistani filmmaker Aleem Khan, After Love follows the story of Mary Hussain, a sixty-two-year-old English Muslim convert who finds herself bereft and adrift when her husband, Ahmed (Nasser Memarzia), dies unexpectedly of a heart attack. Mary, played by the peerless Joanna Scanlan (The Thick of It, Pin Cushion), lives in the coastal town of Dover in the south of England. In the days after her husband’s death, she discovers that Ahmed has a secret family living just twenty-one miles across the English Channel in Calais. She sets out on a journey to find them, and what unravels is a profound journey into the lives of people caught between identities and cultures. This is complex and subtle filmmaking, exploring themes of betrayal, religious identity, sexuality, personal morality and importantly, the effects of parents’ life choices on their children. Scalan’s performance is one of striking subtlety and sensitivity.
