The Indianapolis Museum of Art shares yet another beautiful art film with the Circle City. The Yellow House tells the story of a father after his son’s death. See it on Thursday, October 22, 2009 in the Toby Theatre in the IMA. Tickets are $9.00 for Indianapolis people, $5.00 for IMA members, and $7.00 for Indianapolis kids with a student ID. The film begins promptly at 7:00 pm.
The Yellow House follows one Algerian family, who lost their eldest son to military service. The boy’s father, Mouloud, sets out to reclaim his sons body. However, when he arrives at the morgue, he is told that he cannot take his son’s remains with him for proper funerary rites. The film, showing at the IMA this Thursday, follows a determined father as he faces a variety of dangers on his quest to honor his son. Faced with a mourning wife and bleak, empty life after the death of his son, Mouloud tries everything to pull his family back together. Like all peasants in the hostile land of Aures, he knows that to give up is to die.
