Marrakesh and cinema have something in common: the art of telling stories. Since the birth of cinema, the public have flocked to movie theatres, just as they do around story tellers in Jemaa El Fna. As an admirer of the Maghreb since my studies in France and since my very first short film, I am happy to see once more my Moroccan friends knowing that Marrakesh will welcome us with its legendary hospitality and will always give us the pleasure of beautiful stories.
