Adios Carmen

Available March 3 at 10:00 amMarch 10 at 11:59 pm ONLY

It’s 1975. Ten-year-old Amar lives in a village in northern Morocco with his violent uncle, eagerly awaiting the unlikely return of his mother, who has left him for Belgium. He finds a much needed friend in his neighbor, Carmen, a Spanish exile from the Franco regime. Their unlikely friendship develops through the bond of cinema, and sheds light on the ancient and complicated story that connects Spaniards and Moroccans. Adios Carmen invokes such Italian classics as Il Postino and Cinema Paradiso.
