A film that replaces myths with humanity and humor
"Casablanca Mon Amour offers an entertaining road map between yesteryear's Hollywood and todayʼs Morocco." —Dr. Jack Shaheen, author of Reel Bad Arabs and former CBS news consultant on Middle East affairs.
CASABLANCA MON AMOUR
A FILM BY JOHN SLATTERY
A non-traditional road movie exploring a Moroccan perspective on the entwined
relationship between Hollywood and the Arab/Muslim World.
Casablanca Mon Amour is a modern road movie that encapsulates the more complex and fractured nature of living in a world where TV and wars compete for headlines and occupy imaginations. Using movies as a road map between yesterdayʼs Hollywood and todayʼs Morocco, Casablanca Mon Amour offers a Moroccan perspective on the long and entwined relationship between Hollywood and The Arab/Muslim World. Casablanca Mon Amour offers more than a dry critique of the impact of media on culture. Instead, the film takes a human and humorous look at the effects Hollywood films have on peopleʼs imaginations and affords Moroccanʼs (our movie set ʻextrasʼ) an opportunity to talk back—which they do in intelligent, witty and wildly ingenious ways.
