Harpur Cinema presents 'On the Edge' (Leila Kilani - 2011 – Morocco)

In her first feature-length film, Leila Kilani explores the existence of young women factory workers living “on the edge” in modern Tangier’s Free Zone. Caught in the ruthless industrial city, Badia, Imane, Nawal and Asma transform from victims into warriors who live by their own rules and take their rights by force. Blending heist and gangster film genre with intense realist drama, “Kilani dynamically moves female characters from the margins of the narrative and into pole position in an energizing move away from the existing crime films formulas” (Rebecca Ellis).

 

Won: FIPRESCI Prize, Oslo Film Festival – Abu Dhabi Film Festival Award – Special Jury Prize, Brussels International Independent Film Festival – Jury Award, Paris Cinema.

Admission is $4.00
