Film, from 11 Nov 2016




Mimosas is a visionary travelogue through the Moroccan Mountains. Visually striking, it resembles a psychedelic western and won director Oliver Laxe the Critics Week Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A caravan escorts an elderly and dying Sheikh through the Atlas. His last wish is to be buried with his loved ones but when he dies, most of the caravaneers refuse to continue transporting the corpse. The task falls to two rogues travelling with the caravan, Ahmed and Said, and an eccentric stranger who meets them on the way.
