Salvation Army

29 Sep 2015


Abdellah is a young gay man navigating the sexual, racial and political climate of Morocco. Growing up in a large family in a working-class neighborhood, Abdellah is caught between a distant father, an authoritarian mother, an older brother whom he adores and a handful of predatory older men, in a society that denies his homosexuality. Salvation Army, the directorial debut for Abdellah Taïa – an acclaimed Moroccan and Arab writer – is adapted from his novel of the same name. Discussion with the director after the screening. Free admission.

Join us on Sunday, September 27 from 3-5 p.m. as Mr. Taïa reads from his novels.
