1988 NR

Directed by Steffen and Christian Pierce, this documentary chronicles the annual September tradition -- which attracts an increasing number of tourists each year -- in which men and women of Morocco's remote Imilchil villages meet at the local main shrine to choose mates and marry. From the participants' colorful clothing to the differences between Arab and Western societies, the film captures the highlights of this fascinating yearly event.
