Filmmaker Oliver Laxe is back in this year’s festival with his latest film FIRE WILL COME. In anticipation, we’re reprising a theatrical run of 2017’s popular MIMOSAS. With breathtaking cinematography and Laxe’s signature examination of subtly fascinating personalities, the film follows a dying elder who is being transported across Morocco’s Atlas mountains.

In the High Atlas Mountains at an indeterminate time in the past, a caravan of travelers searches for a pass that will allow them to return an ailing elderly Sufi master to his home to die. Among the party is Ahmed, a rascal and a survivor, who is willing to do whatever it takes to rise up from his miserable condition. Ahmed is particularly inspired by the Sufi master and his wife and, upon the old mans death, he becomes aware of his own innate abilities and takes up the leadership of the caravan. On his journey, he receives the assistance of Shakib, a young man sent on a mission from a special place in contemporary Morocco.
