Two Sessions 2pm | 6pm
Adam is a moving and heart-warming story of food, friendship and female empowerment, set against the backdrop of a modern-day Casablanca medina. “Poignant and involving”, Adam is “a beautiful story of two women who transform each other’s lives” (Hollywood Reporter).
The debut feature film from director Maryam Touzani, Adam explores the unlikely friendship between two very different women – one a lonely widow and the other unmarried and pregnant – whose paths cross in a tiny bakery. Initially closed off from the world, the widowed Alba (Lubna Azabal) is reluctantly charmed by pregnant Samia’s (Nisrin Erradi) eagerness to lend a hand with baking. When conservative values threaten both women’s freedoms as Samia struggles to prepare for her growing baby, the bond they grow to share could be the saving of them both.
“One of Adam’s central pleasures is its calm arrival at fundamental truths about how women nurture and provide — even when they themselves receive little of the same” – ScreenDaily
