Grand Voyage

Wednesday, Jun 10th 4:30pm


Mustapha, an elderly Moroccan who has lived in France for many years, decides that it is finally time for him to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, accompanied by his youngest son. But his son's habits couldn’t be further from the traditional ones Mustapha holds.

As they make the long trip—across no fewer than seven countries—the two clash as well as gain unexpected insights on one another and Islam in this offbeat road movie.

In French and Arabic with English subtitles.

4:30, 6:50 and 9:15pm

Directed by Ismaël Ferroukhi
With Nicolas Cazalé, Mohamed Majd
2004, 108min

Ismael Ferroukhi was born in Kenitra, Morocco. After directing his first short film, L'Exposé, which premiered at Cannes in 1993, Ferroukhi co-wrote the script for Cédric Kahn's feature film Trop de Bonheur (1994).
