Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Casablanca Mon Amour is a modern road movie that encapsulates the more complex and fractured nature of living in a world where TV and wars compete for headlines and occupy imaginations. Using movies as a road map between yesterdayʼs Hollywood and todayʼs Morocco, Casablanca Mon Amour offers a Moroccan perspective on the long and entwined relationship between Hollywood and The Arab/Muslim World.

Casablanca Mon Amour offers more than a dry critique of the impact of media on culture. Instead, the film takes a human and humorous look at the effects Hollywood films have on peopleʼs imaginations and affords Moroccanʼs (our movie set ʻextrasʼ) an opportunity to talk back—which they do in intelligent, witty and wildly ingenious ways.

Casablanca Mon Amour uses the process of movie making as a way of turning the Great American Story on its head - and offering Hollywood and America a story about itself.

Casablanca Mon Amour mixes the planned with the un-planned, the road-move with the essay, and offers Buster Keaton-like satire mixed with Kiarostami-esque connections.
