With the participation of Léa Morin (researcher and curator), Touda Bouanani (Archives Bouanani), Omar Berrada (researcher and curator), Ali Essafi (filmmaker and researcher), Pablo La Parra (Coordinator of the Research Department at the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola), Manuel Asín (Artistic Director of Punto de Vista)
Within the context of the retrospective Who Will Tell the Story? Beginnings of Documentary Film in Morocco, curated by Omar Berrada and Ali Essafi, Punto de Vista Festival enters into collaboration with Léa Morin and the Research Department at the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola,, leading to the digitization of the material available from two hitherto practically unspooled films made by the documentary filmmakers Abdlerkader Lagtaâ and Mostafa Derkaoui at the end of the 1980s: Le port de Casablanca and La femme rurale au Maroc (the latter in collaboration with Fatima Mernissi). Within the same framework, we welcome Touda Bouanani, head of Archives Bouanani in Rabat, from where she has driven the recovery of her father's work and that of a whole generation of Moroccan filmmakers. Touda will stay on in Pamplona after the festival, undertaking a research residency at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Huarte (CACH). In the company of all these guests, we will ask ourselves about the challenges and possibilities of research, programming and preservation in alternative archives, particularly in Morocco.
