New York premiere
Presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy
France/Morocco. Dir. Saïd Hamich. 2017, 69 mins. Digital projection. With Anas El Baz, Saïd Benchnafa, Kate Colebrook. Nassim, a 30-year-old French-Moroccan man, returns from Abu Dhabi to his hometown in Southern France, with his American fiancée. But the trip offers little comfort; the failing city is now governed by the far right, the Moroccan community is isolated, and Nassim is virtually estranged from his father. Relationships and family bonds are tested. With a sure touch, Hamich draws us into a deeply absorbing series of confrontations and realizations, telling a universal story that is very much rooted in today’s political climate.
