Fenar Ahmad was born in Czechoslovakia and came to Denmark as an Iraqi refugee. In 2004 he began making documentaries, and in 2007 he joined the film collective Super16.

Body

Zaid has escaped the chains of his troubled upbringing to achieve financial stability, career success, and build a home with his wife in Copenhagen. When a local drugs gang kills his brother, Zaid risks his new privileged lifestyle to seek revenge. Surgeon by day, Zaid dons a mask by night, jumps on his motorbike, and hunts down the criminals who have done him wrong, returning to the struggling neighbourhood he escaped from years ago. Director Fenar Ahmad’s sophomore feature is a gritty, visual, high-concept thriller, making him a director to watch.

Contains flashing images.
