We present here a selection of shorts that captures the spirit of a new generation of Moroccan filmmakers. Waltz with Asmahan (Dir Samia Charkioui. 22min) shows the hopeless escapism of a young woman trying to live up to her Diva idol Asmahan. As They Say (Dir Hisham Ayouch. 13min) courageously addresses the impossibility of coming out as gay in a Moroccan patriarchal society. Margelle (Dir Omar Mouldouira. 28min) offers a fairytale account of the demonisation of women in Moroccan society. And Al Hadaf (Dir Munir Abbar. 18min) is a clever look at contemporary prejudices surrounding terrorism in Morocco.

Total running time 81 min
