HORSES OF GOD

DIRECTOR: Nabil Ayouch - MOROCCO

Two young soccer-loving friends, Yachine and Nabil, grow up under the fierce protection of Yachine’s older brother, Hamid. But in the sprawling slums of Sidi Moumen, not even Hamid can defend them against the harshness and injustice of the life that surrounds them. Fed up with that life, Hamid throws a rock at a police car and earns himself two years in prison. When he returns, an eerie calm masks his newfound zealotry, and his fundamentalist friends seem to exercise a powerful influence. Inspired by the real-life 2003 terrorist attacks in Casablanca, Ayouch’s film is a thoughtful and affecting inquiry into how ordinary people come to do desperate, unfathomable things. Winner of the Best Director Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. (115 mins.)

Filmography: Mektoub (97), Ali Zoua: A Prince of the Streets (00), Whatever Lola Wants (07), My Land (11).
