  • In Pieces

    2009. Morocco. Directed by Hakim Belabbes. An unflinchingly intimate chronicle of the filmmaker’s family in Morocco, made from footage collected over more than a decade, In Pieces captures the passage of time across generations. It is a poetic account of a country, as Belabbes, an eccentric figure in Moroccan cinema, records the extent to which larger social and political change has—or has not—affected his modest family. Narrated in a hybrid of first-person plural and singular, the film gracefully shifts between fiction and nonfiction. In Arabic, French; English subtitles. 91 min.
