Made using archive footage from the Moroccan Cinema Centre, this film is a non-linear, syncopated and dissonant account of the French Protectorate in Morocco. “Thakirah Arba’at ‘Ashar was originally a poem I wrote in 1967, some passages of which are used in the film. I tried to recompose the “reality” of my characters and their worlds through anachronistic memories, memories nourished by myths.” (Ahmed Bouanani)
