Morocco’s Nabil Ayouch Ups his Commitment to Exploring the Roots of Terrorism (Exclusive)

17 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the wake of the early January terrorist attacks in Paris, renewed attention is currently being placed on Arab filmmakers who try to explore the roots of religious-inspired terrorism.

The pic was co-financed by France’s Pierre Ange Le Pogam and Wild Bunch, unspooled in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2012 and was Morocco’s official entry for the 86th Academy Awards and the country’s first-ever Golden Globes entry.

Ayouch’s initial reaction to Variety after the Charlie Hebdo slaughter was categorical: “It’s a sad day. I’m still very shocked. »
