Habib & The Thief

International Short Film Competition

Habib is getting ready for a party - theme: Middle East Royale! But an unknown shoplifter pilfers his perfect outfit. When they meet at the party, it starts to spark between them. But Habib has no idea who else he'll meet that night. This playful and fresh variation on the journey to a first date is full of colour and music, but it also shows a darker, dramatic side.
