LA FEMME A LA CAMERA
60 minutes, 2012
Direction : Karima ZOUBIR (Morocco)
Production : Les Films de Demain (Morocco)
“La Femme à la caméra” is the bittersweet story of Khadija, a young illiterate Moroccan divorcee who, despite strong resistance from her family and her environment, is determined to ensure her independence by working as a videographer for weddings.
With the wedding season in full swing in Casablanca, we follow Khadija in her comings and goings between the family’s flat, where the tension is palpable, and the world of hope and light – the wedding parties she films.
A tale full of risk, “The woman with the camera” takes us into the world of these young divorced women who want to forge a social space of their own, without hurting or offending anyone. But can they?
