South of Marrakech, a community frozen in time is jostled by the socio-political tumult of a country undergoing profound change. The first part of a trilogy of documentaries filmed in Morocco, House in the Fields focuses on relationships in a remote community high in the Atlas Mountains. Through the eyes of two young sisters (one of whom is about to be married), director Hadid delivers an astonishing portrayal of a village fighting at all costs to preserve its values and traditions.IN COMPETITIONWith the support of the Centre Culturel Marocain
