Hakim Belabbes & Dan Smith in person!

“Beautifully shot in vibrant colors, the film shifts between characters, story lines, and perspectives with the prismatic grace of a kaleidoscope.” — Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

In this highly personal first feature by Moroccan-born, Chicago-based Hakim Belabbes, a dying man, accompanied by his Americanized daughter, returns after many years to his native village.  Mixing documentary and surrealist styles, Belabbes weaves the impressionistic threads of different lives into a rich fabric of village life that illuminates themes of exile, parenting, and rite of passage.  In French and Arabic with English subtitles. Director Hakim Belabbes and co-producer Don Smith will be present for audience discussion (Marty Rubin). With Azzedine Bouayad, Laura Marks. 2003, Hakim Belabbes, Morocco, 92 min, 35mm.
