Prix Illy for best short film
(Cannes Director's Forthnight in 2012)
Tangier Stories (In development/Writing)
A French-British-Moroccan coproduction
Directed by Fyzal Boulifa
In Tangier, European tourists in search of paradise at a good price collide with locals struggling to get ahead in a city often as brutal as it is intoxicating. In relationships that at first seem mutually beneficial all involved will face a much darker reality - as well as their own demons. Thus Tangier becomes a theatre of strange and forbidden meetings marked by forces bigger than these individuals have imagined, a portrait of illusions found and lost as two worlds confront one another
