A House in the Fields

This film examines life in an isolated Amazigh community in the High Atlas Mountains. The thousand-year history of the Amazigh in Morocco has been primarily transmitted and preserved by bards and storytellers in oral form. House in the Fields continues this tradition; it is told in collaboration with two teenage sisters, one who must give up school to be married, and the other who dreams of being a lawyer. This uniquely intimate take on the ethnographic documentary shows issues of tradition and change from the perspectives of young women.
