House In The Fields
Directed by Tala Hadid
85 mins | 2017 | Morocco | Digital | F-Rated | Subtitled
A documentary portrait of an isolated rural Amazigh village in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, House in the Fields is a portrait of a community that has remained unchanged for hundreds of years despite being confronted by the rapidly accelerating socio-political realities of the country at large. The film observes and faithfully records the lives of the villagers, specifically two teenage sisters: Fatima, who must give up school to prepare for her wedding in Casablanca, and Khadija who dreams of becoming a lawyer, provided the male elders approve.
