Volubilis is a tale of love as a couple's bond is put to the test. In the Moroccan city of Meknes, recently married Abdelkader, a security guard in a shopping center, and Malika, a housekeeper, struggle to make ends meet. They dream of moving in together and starting a life of their own, but one day at work, Abdelkader experiences a violent and humiliating incident that will turn their lives upside down. Part love story, part social drama, Moroccan director Faouzi Bensaïdi's fourth feature is a powerful fable about human dignity and the demanding nature of economic liberalism. —Various sources

In Arabic with English subtitles

Co-presented with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Middle East Institute Arts & Culture Program
