    Poignant AJFF Film Chronicles Jewish Migration From Morocco

    The film, “Midnight Orchestra,” follows a Jewish man’s return to Morocco, where he was raised.

    Slowly, through the film, he discovers why his father, a famous musician, made his family leave the country for Israel decades before.

    In the immortal “Casablanca,” cagey club owner Humphrey Bogart remarks that he came to the titular Moroccan city “for the waters.”

    When police captain Claude Rains points out that they’re in a desert, Bogart’s Rick replies enigmatically, “I was misinformed.”

    Michael Botbol, the Moroccan Jewish protagonist of the picaresque comedy-mystery “The Midnight Orchestra,” can identify.
