The Arlington International Film Festival presents...

Thomas Ladenburger, Director|Germany/Morocco |2010|EAST COAST PREMIERE

Brendyn Schneider, local Arlington, MA Storyteller will introduce the film with a story of his own.

Synopsis: On Djemaa el Fna Square in the Moroccan city of Marrakech, Abderahim El Magori tells stories that he has been collecting in his mind and heart since he was a child. Now that he is growing older, he is teaching his son, Zoheir the tricks of a dying trade. In the Halqa, the storyteller’s circle, the boy practices his skills and his father provide blunt criticism. Once Zoheir is ready for it, he and his father travel to Fez, the intellectual capital of Morocco, for the ultimate test on the large city square. The camera follows the pair on their journey which is interspersed with stories about ghosts, kings, shoemakers and animals.

However, Zoheir has to find his own style for a new generation of listeners who do not only want to hear about days long past but also get information about things like AIDS.
