  • "In Pieces"

Local filmmaker Hakim Belabbes grew up in Boujad, Morocco, where his father owned the only movie theater in town.

In his film In Pieces, the School of the Art Institute professor documents his "complex, and sometimes uneasy, relationship with his family and culture in Morocco," writes Beth Capper in Cine-File. It screens Wednesday 2/17 at SAIC.

In Pieces won a special mention at the Dubai International Film Festival. It plays in the biweekly Eye & Ear Clinic screening series Wednesday 2/17 at 6 PM at SAIC, 112 S. Michigan, Room 1307. Belabbes will attend. See a trailer here.
