Steamboat briefs: Free Moroccan film at the Chief Theater on Wednesday
Bud Werner Memorial Library’s free foreign film series continues at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Chief Theater with the Moroccan crime thriller “Traitors,” directed by Sean Gullette.
Malika, leader of Traitors, an all-female punk rock band, has a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier and her place in it. When she needs money to save her family from eviction and to realize her dreams for the band, Malika agrees to a fast cash proposition: a smuggling run over the mountains for a dangerous drug dealer. But her companion on the road is Amal, a burnt-out young drug mule who Malika decides to free from her enslavement to the dangerous drug dealers. The challenge will put Malika’s rebel ethos to the test, and to survive, she will have to call on all her instincts and nerve.
