A soulful coming-of-age drama, Tazzeka starts in a remote Moroccan village where 11-year-old Elias is raised by his grandmother, who teaches him the secrets of traditional Moroccan cuisine. Elias has a strange passion for a boy his age: French cuisine. As a young man, he moves to Paris to fulfill his dreams to become a haute cuisine chef but cannot find work in a gourmet restaurant as a clandestine immigrant. Though his future seems grim, friendships and his passion for cooking keep him moving forward until a risky gamble to break through presents itself to him.
Please also consider joining us at noon for “Tazzeka Becomes Art,” a special exhibition of visual art inspired by the film. The exhibition is free of charge.
