Set during Ramadan in 1981, "A Thousand Months" tells the story of Medhi, a seven-year-old boy (Fouad Labied) who lives in the Atlas Mountains. His job is to watch over the chair of the teacher at school - a privileged task (that also prevents it being pinched). His mother Amina (Nezha Rahil) and grandfather make him believe that his father has gone to work in France, when in fact Medhi's father is in a local prison. This charming, beautifully shot film focuses on Medhi's relationship with the village, his friends and a world of stories that revolve around Medhi and the inanimate but evocative and symbolic chair.
