TIFF : MPM Premium Acquires Saudi Thriller "Mandoob"

MPM Premium has acquired world sales rights to Ali Kalthami’s dark comedic crime thriller “Mandoob,” which will have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in the Discovery section, one of three Saudi films selected by the event.

Set in Riyadh, the film centers on Fahad Algadaani, a mentally fragile man racing against time to pay for his ailing father’s medical treatment. His life takes an unexpected turn when he is fired from his call center job, and he is forced to make ends meet by working as a delivery driver (“mandoob” means courier in Arabic).
