Abderrahmane Sissako's drama tells the story of Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed), a cattle herder who lives in the mountains outside the titular city with his wife and children. They keep a distance from the religious fundamentalists who control the town, and also grow more and more severe in their leadership as time passes. However, one day the family is forced to confront the growing terror head-on.

SJCT Summer Film Series

From the Oscar winner for “Best Documentary in 2015” to a French feature film based on the true story of American "singer" Florence Foster Jenkins, the premiere season of the SJCT Summer Film Series features a variety of independent films and documentaries.

The series is the brainchild of islander Larry Soll, who says he has always liked independent films and always wanted to have the opportunity to see them on the island. And after SJCT’s projection and sound systems were revamped, it just seemed natural that the Whittier Theatre would be the perfect venue.

“The goal is to offer mind-broadening experiences for islanders, said Larry. “Some will be documentaries, others fantasies. Some will be funny, others not so much.”
