A young painter agrees to change her name on her mailbox in order to find accommodation in Paris. This change of identity sends her back to the secrecy surrounding the death of her parents. Nora Hamdi is inspired by a family story, which occurred in 1992 during the attack at the Algiers airport, and creates “La Couleur dans les mains”.

In Casablanca, Morocco, a female trio is chased by the police. It’s the start of a long ride through the Atlas, its red rocks and flowering valleys, which ends at the edge of the Atlantic. “Reines” is Yasmine Benkiran’s first feature film, presented in 2022 at the end of the international critics’ week at the Venice Film Festival.

Pop, RnB, jazz, soul, gnaoua and afropop are part of his eclectic style. Based in Montreal, Nora Toutain has the gift of moving crowds. She is as comfortable at the Montreal International Jazz Festival as in jazz clubs in Rabat or at Espace Magh in Brussels. His latest album “Better Days” was released in November 2023. Can be found on May 13, 2024 at FGO-Barbara, in Paris.

In Japan, Morocco is in the spotlight for the 12th edition of the Kyotographie international festival. Among the guests, Yassine Alaoui Ismaili (@yoriyas on Instagram) presents the exhibition “Casablanca not the film” and the work produced during her residency, in November 2023, in the former imperial city of Japan. Report by Philippe Dova, Miki Uehara, Mio Hirata.
