Thiklou Ethil (Weight Of The Shadow)


Thirty-five years ago, H'mad Itekou, a young Moroccan/Amazigh student was abducted during what came to be
known as "The Years of Lead" in Morocco. His nonagenarian parents, Ali and Fatma Itekou, have been hanging to a thin thread of hope to find out the truth about their son’s disappearance. The Moroccan Equity and Reconciliation Commission had no answers for the old couple. Following the death of Fatma Itekou, her frail husband and his whole family still wait for answers.
