Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, more widely known as Adil and Bilall, are having quite the moment in Hollywood. In just a few short years, the Belgian directing duo skyrocketed from making low-budget independent films to high-stakes action flicks. The meteoric rise is only continuing thanks to some major gigs, but they haven’t lost track of their independent, dramatic, and unashamedly Moroccan roots.
Now, they’re combining both these worlds in their newest project, the first and final episodes of “Ms. Marvel” for Disney+. With audiences now getting a glimpse of the duo’s directorial style, you might be wondering what other projects the duo have made that helped them land an MCU directing gig. Thankfully, we’ve gathered all the information you need to get caught up on the intense style of Adil and Billah’s directorial work. Here are the movies you can watch online right now, as well as what you need to know about their upcoming projects.
Every director, or directing duo, needs to start somewhere, and these often come in the form of short films. After all, directing a short film gives artists a good idea of what to do when their dream of directing a feature-length one comes. Adil & Bilall have made two prominent short films that showcased their developing talent, growing into their style in the process.
Described simply as “a modern fable about two young men” on its IMDb page, “Broeders” follows Karim and Nassim, two polar opposites that just so happen to live in the same neighborhood. While they might be vastly different in terms of goals and direction, their lives become intertwined in dangerous ways.
