‘Face to Face’ opens political oppression Files in Morocco
Moroccan actress Huda al Rihani has wrapped up shooting of her role in the film Wajhan Liwajh (face to face) by the Moroccan director Abdel Qader Laqtaa, in which she assumes the role of a very liberal girl named Zainab.
The film depicts the political arrests and mysterious death incidents of citizens during the seventies in Morocco.
Costarring in the film are Younes Makri, Mohammed al Marwazi, Sanaa al Olwi and Bushra Ajork.
“I am embarking on shooting a role in another film entitled al Furn (the oven) under the direction of Hakim Balabbas. It is the first long narrative film for the Balabbas who has directed a number of short films. Al Furn depicts the parent-children relationship through a number of interrelated stories,” Rihani told the London based Arabic daily al Sharq al Awsat.
The latest Rihani’s appearance on the small screen has been in the comedy series Kulha Yalghi Bilughah (everybody speaks his own language) which was aired by the Moroccan channel 1. She has also participated in a TV film entitled al Khuyoul Tasqut Tibaan (horses fall successively) by the director Mohammed al Sherif al Traibeq and which has recently been aired by the Moroccan channel 2 -- Albawaba.com
