This nostalgic and ground-breaking film set in 1975, from first-time feature director Mohamed Amin Benamraoui, is set in a period of Moroccan history that is not often dealt with in Moroccan cinema: the Spanish occupation. Looking at music, young boys and the power of cinema, and incorporating a Moroccan version of the Romeo and Juliet tale as a sub-plot, it surprises, twists, and ultimately delivers a message of hope for young people and for love.
Directed by Mohamed Amin Benamraouri
