Imagine the Mediterranean: Interview with Farida Benlyazid

21.06.2018 / Created by IEMed

Farida Benlyazid is one of the few Moroccan female filmmakers and writers. Her movies often present a unique construction and perception of women’s place and roles, as she tends to reflect the daily concerns of Moroccan women in a male dominated society. In this interview, with Maria-Àngels Roque, director of Quaderns de la Mediterrània (Notebooks of the Mediterranean), Benlyazid speaks about her artistic trajectory and her views regarding the current cultural and social scene in Morocco.

Quaderns de la Mediterrània is one of the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed)’s projects that contribute to intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean.
