Event cost: £13
Adil Azzab is a Moroccan filmmaker and a film educator living in Milan, Italy. Two decades ago, however, he was a young unwilling shepherd dreaming of cinema in his rural hometown pastures. In his debut feature – made with the help of non-professional actors and grassroots support – Adil recounts how coping with the life-changing and harsh experience of emigration at age 13 catapulted the poor countryside boy into adulthood. The result is a compellingly candid first person tale on the challenges of migration and cultural identity.
Followed by a Q&A with director and star Adil Azzab.
