2 p.m. @ The Coastal Theater

In a Moroccan village in the Atlas Mountains during the holy month of Ramadan in 1981, Amina and her 7-year-old daughter Mehdi have come to live with her father-in-law, Ahmed, after her husband is arrested for political reasons. A Thousand Months is a stark but lovely evocation of the many melodramas that simultaneously haunt and enliven the family members. Following the screening, Salma Oubkkou, teaching associate in the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, leads a discussion on the cultural context of the film.
