Screenings and tickets


Carla is a 62-year-old Dutch woman who has converted to Islam to marry a 33-year-old Libyan freedom fighter. The film shows their daily routine in Amsterdam, and how political events in the Middle East affect their lives. Carla has a no-nonsense attitude towards the tensions surrounding Islam and the Muslim community in her own country. Even though Fouad seems to truly Carla, they seek a second younger wife to provide him with children. This will put their relationship to the test.
