Global Lens: Khorma

Tunisian director Jilani Saadi’s debut film is set in the arid village of Bizerte. With his red-blond hair, green jacket and quirky personal habits, Khorma is the town’s kindly joke—a big, well-meaning lug. His guardian is crafty old Bou Khaleb, the official announcer of births, deaths and marriages. When the old man mistakenly announces the death of a woman rather than her daughter’s marriage, the film immerses us in the often-hilarious power struggles amongst the clerics of the “religion business.” Co-presented by the Global Film Initiative, the screening includes an introduction and post-film discussion led by UTSA professor and Current contributor Steven G. Kellman.
