Morocco, Canada (2007) Dir: Hassan Benjelloun. Set in the hamlet of Bejjad, the town’s only bar has a problem. Faced with a law prohibiting Muslims from drinking al- cohol and the imminent departure of Jewish residents (who are secretly leaving for Israel in the wake of Mo- rocco’s independence from France), he’ll soon be out of business. But if he can keep just one Jew in town, he will be able to keep his bar. Arabic and French with English subtitles. Not rated. 90 mins. Funding provided by the Program in Jewish Studies.
