Once Upon a Time in Marrakech: The Movie

In the autumn of 2005, 16 film students from NYC and Morocco converged on Marrakech as guests of the Tribeca Film Institute, Tribeca Film Festival, and the Marrakech International Film Festival Foundation to study under Abbas Kiarostami (joined at one point by Martin Scorsese). This document, by the master's longtime director of photography, will screen with a new Kiarostami short, Roads of Kiarostami, and some of the students' works. (total running time 110 min.)
