Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Adam (Morocco)" *For Adults

Friday, August 26, 2022

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing “Adam", a Moroccan film about Abla, a widow and mother of an eight-year-old girl, who runs a Moroccan pastry shop. When Samia, a young pregnant woman, knocks on her door, Abla has no idea that her life will change forever.

 The way it works:


PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Adam" on Kanopy - one of the library's video streaming service - and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!

You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register - you can use any of BPL's online resources with this card!).

Please register to receive the program link - which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.


Synopsis:

Abla runs a modest local bakery from her home in Casablanca where she lives alone with her 8-year-old daughter Warda. Their routine of housework and homework is interrupted one day by a knock on the door. It is Samia, a young woman looking for a job and a roof over her head. The little girl is immediately taken with the newcomer, but her mother initially refuses to allow a pregnant stranger into their home. Gradually, however, Abla's resolve softens and Samia's arrival begins to offer all of them the prospect of a new life.
