The pregnant daughter has fallen silent, finding some protection from the patriarch’s young second wife and his preteen son. Meanwhile, hard up for money, the household must live with a sullen and imperious boarder, a contract killer. In such a house, though, it may be that freedom and safety actually lie beyond the gates. Iraqi filmmaker Oday Rasheed’s second feature gorgeously captures contemporary Baghdad’s moody interior and stunned atmosphere, echoed in performances by a formidable cast who suggest unexpected resilience in the wake of catastrophe.\r\n\r\n(Global Lens is a series of 10 critically acclaimed contemporary feature films from Colombia, Argentina, Iran, Morocco, Brazil, Rwanda, Albania, Iraq and Turkey that Cinematheque, the University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez film association, together with the Puerto Rico Film Society, our partners in San Juan, are bringing to our campus.\r\n\r\nYou can find more information about Global Lens and these 10 films, and watch trailers for all the films at http://www.globalfilm.org)\r\n\r\nInformation: cine@uprm.edu CLASS:PUBLIC LOCATION: CATEGORIES: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Puerto_Rico:20121205T183000 DTEND;TZID=America/Puerto_Rico:20121205T200000 UID:20121205T183000-62187@uprm.edu DTSTAMP;TZID=America/Puerto_Rico:20170627T151621 SUMMARY:GLOBAL LENS FILM FESTIVAL\r\nDECEMBER 3-6\r\nUPR-MAYAGUEZ\r\n113 STEFANI\r\n\r\n6:30 FILM: TOLL BOOTH (Turkey)\r\nA taciturn tollbooth attendant shuffles between a suffocating home life with his ailing father and the monotony of the box where he works.

Trapped in parental delusions, Rihana falls in love with a young man with whom she carves out the beginnings of her own life. Soon, Rihana’s story awakens repressed thoughts in Zineb’s own troubled mind, and reality merges into a haunted fever-dream of fear and denial in this visually striking, award-winning psychological thriller.
