Reis naar Marokko
'Reis naar Marokko' a new documentary for the Belgian channel Canvas. It is produced by Earth In Motion and directed by Majd Khalifeh and myself. It was broadcasted early summer 2014.
In 2014 we celebrated 50 years of Moroccan presence in Belgium. This also means 50 years of travelling between Morocco and Belgium. How does this journey influence the development of identities, Moroccan traditions and the way Moroccans perceive inheritance in Belgium? We have put this annual 'return' in the spotlight. We followed a Moroccan family to Morocco, during summer holiday. Little by little, by visual impressions, oral testimonies, anecdotes and memories, we looked for the essence of Moroccan migration throughout different generations.
