Isolated, but not insulated

In a beautiful, remote village in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains, Khadija and her older sister Fatima spend their last seasons of childhood together. Like the rest of the isolated Amazigh community they've grown up in, they find themselves at a crossroads between their thousand year old traditions and the influences of modern society. For while Fatima is set to be married and move to Casablanca with her new husband, Khadija dreams of becoming a lawyer. Featuring picturesque tableaus, stunning colours and evocative music, HOUSE IN THE FIELDS is a sensitive and remarkably beautiful documentary.
