“A Thousand Months” movie showing in Malden – July 10, 2009

thousandmonths21Malden Grassroots and the Social Justice Committee at the First Parish in Malden present “A Thousand Months” (“Mille Mois”) on Friday evening, July 10, at 7pm. “A Thousand Months” is a colorful and humorous representation of the richness of life living under a repressive police state. The film focuses on a small boy, Mehdi, who lives in a small Moroccan village. Mehdi has been told that his father is in France, but in reality he is in prison – unjustly we are told – which is the reason for the family’s move from Casablanca to this remote drought-stricken village, to be able to visit him in prison.
Directed by Faouzi Bensaïdi, “A Thousand Months” earned two awards at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. In Arabic and French with English subtitles, the 2003 film runs 124 minutes and is not rated. Admission is free, refreshments are served, and a discussion follows the movie screening.

First Parish in Malden is located at Elm and Pleasant Streets (Route 60), a few blocks west of the Malden Center T station. Free parking is available in the lot between the church and the Beebe Elementary School.
