Osmania University is screening a Dutch film, Hush Hush Baby, at the Osmania University Center For International Programs (OUCIP), on 18th November. The film will begin at 3pm.
Moving from the bleak emptiness of a small Moroccan settlement to the concrete sprawl of urban Holland, writer-director Albert Ter Heerdt uses the clash between traditional values and new-found freedoms, to tell a story of family squabbles and generation gap rows. The film deals with the young Abdullah, who is also torn between the values of his traditional family and his Dutch peers.
Rotting in bed most of the time, 20-year-old Abdullah (Oaissa) hangs out with a group of equally aimless friends, filling his days with puerile fantasies of fame and fortune. His older brother Sam (Amhali) has joined the police force, and is married and stably settled. His mischievous younger brother Driss (Ojja) is forever devising dubious money-making scams. Their sister Leila (Haoud) is ambitious, and studies fashion design, and thwarts all attempts at an arranged marriage.
Abdullah stumbles from a botched job opportunity to a failed bank robbery and possible marriage, and the story deals with his quest for a sense of belonging.
Hush Hush Baby is a comedy that ranges in tone from dry humour to farce. The film runs for 88 minutes, and has Mimoun Oaissa, Najib Amhali, Touriya Haoud, Illias Ojja and Salah Eddine Benmoussa in the lead cast.
