The son of a former Algerian embassy clerk, Sofiane has travelled a lot. Now a student in Lyon, his visa has been revoked and he lives under the threat of expulsion. Hoping to regularise his situation, he agrees to work for a Muslim funeral home, where he begins to gain an understanding of his true identity.

Six Feet Over received the Silver Yusr for Best Screenplay at the Red Sea International Film Festival in 2023, where it received its world premiere.

“Six Feet Over is taut with the tension that comes with being a minority in a western country. The clash of culture that Sofiane battles will sharply resonate with those who find themselves walking the tightrope between westernised ideas and Middle Eastern culture.” – The National
