Abdelhai Laraki

Abdelhaï Laraki is known for tackling sensitive themes in works that have been hailed by critics and acclaimed by audiences. He belongs to the new wave of Moroccan filmmakers of the 1990s. His cinema deals with political repression (Mona Saber, 2002), the power of money (Parfum De Mer, 2006) or sexual frustration (Love In The Medina, 2011). At the core of Love… is the debate on ‘Art Propre/Art sale’ that raged during the Arab Spring. The common thread running through his films is a reflection on human's relationship with history, power and religion.
