Rosemount Lifelong Learning is hosting Africa in Motion’s film screening of “Tar El-Layl – Narrow Frame of Midnight” in partnership with Black History Month Scotland. Come along to our free event where tea, coffee and snacks are provided.

In director Tala Hadid’s lucid and subtly incisive first film The Narrow Frame of Midnight, the interconnected lives of a handful of central characters serve as a window onto the complex and sometimes murky world of contemporary Morocco – a country torn apart by fundamentalism and violence.

Aicha is a young girl sold into the possession of petty criminals by her desperate family. Moroccan/Iraqi writer, Zacaria, becomes her unlikely saviour when their paths cross as he seeks redemption for having turned a blind eye to his brother’s abuse at the hands of the Moroccan secret police, and who he fears has now become entangled in jihadism. Judith, the western lover of Zacaria, longs for a child, and offers sanctuary to the brave but vulnerable Aicha. At once sensitively wise, and thoroughly unsettling, this nuanced and deeply human film holds out cautious hope for the future through characters who, despite
cruel and powerful forces of corruptibility, are driven by compassion, mercy, and the desire for a world in
which innocence and love can survive.
