Closing Screening: BARAKAT (EUROPEAN PREMIERE) + Pre-Recorded Director’s Intro

November 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Dir. Amy Jephta
South Africa. 2020. 103 mins. Afrikaans, English with English subtitles.

How does a family reconcile with the death of a father? That is the question at the heart of this Afrikaans Muslim film, the first of its kind, to be produced in South Africa. The weight of this question is borne by the matriarch of the family, who not only has to deal with her own feelings of loss, but hold her family together, and rebuild a life for herself. Barakat (the Arabic word for blessings) is a story of love, forgiveness, reconciliation, and acceptance.
