Kilikis...the Town of Owls
Directed by Azlarabe Alaoui
The Town of Owls is an isolated residential community situated in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is inhabited by families and guards of a secret political prison camp, which remained out of history for a long time until the early 1990s. Guards spend their long days back and forth between the secret prison and the village, through a suspension bridge built upon a deep valley that connects the village with the fortress prison. The story is about people from different places with dissimilar destinies, yet coalesced together by a common fate that makes them realize that the Town of Owls is in fact a titanic prison in which everyone, including guards and residents, are held detainees.
Director Azlarabe Aloui has been invited to attend and present his film. He has applied for a visa and, if approved, he will be here!
