Description taken from Audio-Visual Research Guide (published
nine editions, 1949-1972) of the National Council of Churches. Through the
eyes of a twelve-year old Muslim boy, the film interprets life in Morocco.
Mustafa leaves his home village to seek an education in the city and his
journey is full of new and interesting experiences. The efforts of the
country to raise its people's living standards are set against backgrounds
of Islamic culture, economic problems, and lack of educational programs at
present. Excellent photography and scripting merit a highly recommended as
an instructional material with junior highs through adults. The
informational content is shared with appealing interest, and the film
contributes to understanding of the culture involved as well as the role
of Islam in that culture. The problems of underdeveloped areas and/or new
countries are shown clearly in this fine example of a "secular" production
with real relevance to missionary studies.
