Play trailer

Asmae El Moudir / MA, 2023 / 97 min.

Poignant, award-winning documentary for which the director reconstructs her old neighbourhood in Casablanca to tell a hidden history of her family, and the country. She brings in family and friends to help untangle the disturbing mysteries of her youth.

poster The Mother of All Lies (Asmae El Moudir, MA 2023)
A little white lie does no harm, but more lies were told than truths in director Asmae El Moudir’s childhood home. In the lively neighbourhood in Casablanca where she grew up, her domineering grandmother laid down the law: the past was taboo, and there were no photos on the walls.
