Presented at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and winner of the Un Certain Regard Screenplay Prize, Meryem Benm’Barek-Aloïsi’s debut feature is an exploration of class politics, women’s issues, social pressures and bureaucracy in modern Morocco with a marvellous ensemble cast. The breaking of her waters at a family gathering means that Sofia, daughter of a well-to-do Casablanca family, can no longer deny, to herself or anyone else, that she is pregnant. This will usher in serious consequences in a country where sex out of wedlock is an imprisonable offence. Whisked away from the party by her cousin, she gives birth in a hospital which admits her on condition that she produce her husband within 24 hours or face the consequences.
