The European channel Arte television will broadcast a documentary on Marrakech terraces on August 12 at 21:15. <i>E-marrakech</i> reports that the documentary was produced by the German journalist Claus-Peter Josten who points out that terraces have always been a convivial place in all the Moroccan cities where various cultures meet. Inspired by the literary work of Fatima Mernissi "Dreams of Women", the documentary also reflects the traditional aspects of the terrace and how women used it in their daily practices. "We chose Marrakech because the terraces of the city are a true reflection of the customs and habits of the Moroccans in general," said Claus-Peter Josten, the producer of the documentary.
