After it won the Feprisci Award in Egypt, the Moroccan Sahrawi documentary film “Summer Pack” comes back strong by participating in the Mediterranean Film Festival in Tetouan.
The film, which represented Morocco at the International Film Festival of Ismailia, Egypt and won the award of the International Federation of Film Critics (Feprisci), is competing in the official selection of the International Mediterranean Film Festival in the northern city of Tetouan, considered in Morocco as one of the largest international film events.
“The selection of “Summer Pack” to participate for the first time in an event in Morocco reflects the tremendous effort made by its team to give a beautiful image of film production in the southern provinces,” film producer Said Zribiaa told APAnews.
He also praised the great support he received from the President of the Commission of Aid to the Production of Film Works, Ms. Ghita El Khayat, throughout the stages of the competition, “which proves, according to him, his determination to promote Moroccan film productions and raise them in the international film festivals.”
This film, shot in the vicinity of the city of Smara in the southern provinces of Morocco, tells the story of people who have chosen to live in isolation, away from the city and its harsh environmental conditions, people who invoke the Creator on the margins of society and in infinite spaces.
As a reminder, “Summer Pack” was in competition at the Ismailia Festival, with nine foreign films, selected from no less than 971 productions internationally.
