Documentary Casablanca Calling

Monday, 6 March, 2017 - 19:30
Cinema RITCS
Antoine Dansaertstraat 70, 1000 Brussel
02/629 22 18
Screening and aftertalk

Casablanca Calling follows three Morchidat – Hannane, Bouchra and Karima – as they set out to change their country, starting at street level. The Morchidat have a mission: to teach an Islam based on compassion, tolerance and equality, and to separate its true teachings from prejudice, misinterpretation and misunderstanding. Their work takes them into mosques, schools, homes, orphanages, prisons, and out in the countryside. They support the education of women and girls’; campaign against early marriage; and encourage young people to build a better Morocco, rather than dreaming of life in the West. 

Casablanca Calling is an intimate portrait of three Morchidat, a society in transition, and a mission to educate a nation.

FR and ENG subtitles

Followed by an aftertalk with Iman Lechkar (chairholder Fatima Mernissi Chair) and director Rosa Rogers
