Arabian Nights
Morocco / 2012 / Arabic, French dialogue with English subtitles / Colour and Black & White / DigiBeta / 78 minutes


Using movies as a road map, and in part a road movie itself, CASABLANCA MON AMOUR offers a Moroccan perspective on the long and entwined relationship between Hollywood and the Arab world. This highly original film takes a human look at the effects that blockbusters have had people’s imaginations and affords Moroccans an opportunity to talk back - which they do in intelligent, witty and wildly ingenious ways. Part-documentary, part-fiction, and featuring a cast of compelling non-actors, CASABLANCA MON AMOUR uses the process of movie making as a way of turning the Great American Story on its head; in the process it offers Hollywood and America a story about itself.
