Wednesday, May 25 at 6:30 p.m. the Moroccan independent film, “Ali Zaoua” will be presented at the library. This film features the lives of a group of street urchins living on the hard streets of Casablanca. Their everyday lives are filled with violence, begging, and indifference. In order to survive they create a bond of friendship and family between them. The bond is cut short when Ali is senselessly killed at the beginning of the film by a blow to the head; his life taken by a single act of a rival gang. Ali`s friends decide not to report his death to the police, who would have the boy buried in a potter’s field. Instead they decide to give him a worthy burial, to bury Ali on the private island he so often dreamed of. Ali Zaoua captures the power of dreams and presence of hope in the harshest of circumstances. The film is 90 minutes and popcorn will be provided!
