Director: Oliver Laxe. Starring: Ahmed Hammoud, Shakib Ben Omar, Said Aagli, Ikram Anzouli, Ahmed El Othemani, Hamid Fardjad. Spain/Morocco/France/Qatar 2016. 96 mins. Arabic with English subtitles. A caravan is escorting an elderly and dying Sheikh to Sijilmasa. His last wish is to be buried with his loved ones. But death does not wait and reaches him while crossing the rugged peaks of the Moroccan Atlas. The caravaneers, fearful of the mountain, refuse to continue transporting the corpse. Said and Ahmed, two rogues travelling with the caravan, declare they know the way to Sijilmasa and promise to take the body there. In another world, parallel and remote, Shakib is chosen to travel to the mountains where the caravan is. His assignment is clear: he has to help the accidental caravaneers to reach their destination. Oliver Laxe's second feature won the top prize in the International Critics' Week at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
