Film Synopsis: Adam
On the streets of Casablanca, a pregnant woman is knocking on door after door in search of a job. Unmarried and on the run, Samia is also in desperate need of a roof over her head. Abla, a widowed mother who runs a small bakery from the back of her home, initially turns Samia away – before offering her shelter for the night.
In a society heavily dominated by patriarchal structures, cultures and traditions, the future for Samia and her unborn child is far from certain. Adam pays homage to the power of female solidarity and the desire, shared by so many Moroccan women, to take control of their future.

Digital events still require a lot of work behind the scenes, and hosting digital screenings incurs significant costs. To reflect this, our recommended ticket price is £7, however we are operating a “sliding scale” ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) whereby audience members choose what to pay based on personal circumstances, from £2 upwards. We don’t ask for any proof or ID – we just ask you to please be honest, so that this model can be sustainable for us as a small independent charity. For further guidance on price levels, please refer to this document, or the image below:
We don’t want price to be a barrier to access our festival. If you require free access, please contact email@example.com, indicating the title of the film you wish to watch.
All live workshops and Q&As will be free to access.
