The screening is followed by a Q&A with director Oliver Laxe
Winner of the Critic's Week Grand Prize at Cannes, Mimosas is both a contemporary Western and a stunning odyssey through the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
A caravan escorts a dying sheikh through the unforgiving landscape. His last wish is to be buried with his loved ones, but death does not wait. The caravaneers, fearful of the mountain pass, refuse to transport the corpse. Ahmed and Saïd, two rogues traveling with the caravan, pretend they know the way and promise to take the corpse to its destiny.
Mimosas, dir. Oliver Laxe, Spain 2016, 96 mins
