33rd JC of Carthage: Three award-winning Moroccan films

The 33rd Carthage Cinematographic Days (JCC) ended on Saturday evening in Tunis. If the Tanit d’ord was won by the Tanzanian film, “Les révoltés”, three Moroccan films were also awarded.

This is the film “Life suits me well”, directed by Al Hadi Ulad-Mohand, which was awarded the “Carthage Critics’ Week” prize.

In this sense, the president of the jury, the film critic and director, Serge Albert Toubiana, indicated that it is a powerful film which represents a human portrait which, through remarkable interpretations and captivating images, carried on the screen a look full of empathy on family wounds.

This 92-minute film tells the story of Fouad, the only employee of a post office in a small town in northern Morocco. A neurological disease changes his life and that of his family and a new story begins for him, his wife and their children. Their home will be filled with love, sorrow and memories. As Fouad is about to die, his family members rediscover each other. As time passes, the wounds appear, but the desire to live is insatiable.

The prize for best original music went to Kamal Kamal for his work in the Moroccan film “The Slave” by Abdelilah El Jaouhari, while the fiction “A Summer in Boujad” by Omar Mouldouira was awarded the National Center for Cinema and Image.

The Tanzanian film “Les révoltés”, by its director Amil Shivji, won the Tanit d’or, the supreme award of these Carthage Film Days.

“Les Révoltés” ​​is about love and politics during the last years of British colonization in Zanzibar.

The feature films “Sous les figs” by Tunisian Erige Sehiri and “Sharaf” by Egyptian Samir Nasr won the silver and bronze Tanit respectively.

Morocco was represented by eight films including “Fatema, the unforgettable Sultane”, a feature film by Mohammed Abderrahman Tazi, screened as a preview at the opening of these Days.
