We’re screening Oliver Laxe’s ‘Mimosas’ at the end of September in our first Scalarama screening!
Laxe’s ‘Mimosas’ is about an elderly, dying sheikh who travels across the Moroccan Atlas mountains in a caravan. His final wish is to be buried with his loved ones. The sheikh dies before he reaches his destination. Fearful of the mountain, the caravaners that escorted the sheikh refuse to take his body any further. ‘Mimosas’ follows the story of Saïd and Ahmed, a pair of rogues travelling with the caravan, who insist that they know another way and can escort the sheikh’s body to his final resting place.
We screen at our regular venue, Old Manor Park Library in Manor Park, E12, on Sunday 30th September. Tickets cost £7 (concessions £6) and are available on the door.
The venue is wheelchair-accessible via a ramp at the side entrance. There will also be refreshments and the space is open early to encourage attendees to mingle and meet others, so join early if you can.
