Directed by Oliver Laxe, Spain/Morocco, 2016, 1h 36min, subtitled
With Ahmed Hammoud, Shakib Ben Omar, Said Aagli
Oliver Laxe merges harsh reality and offbeat mysticism into a reflection on the tug between our higher powers and baser instinct, in this dreamy, beautifully shot parable. A caravan escorts an elderly and dying Sheikh through the Moroccan Atlas. His last wish is to be buried with his close ones, but fearful of the mountains, his cortege hesitates.
