Moroccan Film Fest

By Alexandra Glorioso

Sat., May 14, 6 p.m.: Since its inception, the Cinémathèque de Tanger has been dedicated to the collection and preservation of Moroccan and Arab film heritage, ranging from fiction to documentary, home movies to experimental cinema.

This program offers a cross-section of films with the city of Tangiers at the heart of their cinematic ideas. Highlights include; Arabs Love Cats, Akram Zaatari and Mounir Fatmi’s tribute to William Burroughs and Naked Lunch; an exploration of the city’s literary imagination and those who contributed to its invention with An American in Tangier.

A different angle on Tangier emerges in Gabriel Veyre’s extraordinary short documentary, View of the Main Square and the Small Square, to be shown at FIAF on May 10, which reveals an unknown Tangier while also depicting the colonial imaginary representations associated with the former international zone.

The rare film will be shown alongside the spontaneous-fictional dimensions of the 2010 Cannes selection You Are All Captains (Oliver Laxe).

Curated by Bouchra Khalili

Tangerine Tales is co-presented with World Nomads Morocco.
