Casablanca Mon Amour - Screened at Dubai International Film Fest

Casablanca Mon Amour is a modern road movie that encapsulates the more complex and fractured nature of living in a world where TV and wars compete for headlines and occupy imaginations.

Casablanca Mon Amour offers more than a dry critique of the impact of media on culture. Instead, the film takes a human and humorous look at the effects Hollywood films have on people’s imaginations and affords Moroccan’s (our movie set ‘extras’) an opportunity to talk back—which they do in intelligent, witty and wildly ingenious ways.
Casablanca Mon Amour uses the process of movie making as a way of turning  the Great American Story on its head – and offering Hollywood and America story about itself.
Here is another interesting, witty and humourous film.
Filmed in Morocco!  79 mins !  In Arabic & French with English subtitles.
