When producers Shivani Rawat and Monica Levinson met with director Brad Anderson, they came away impressed with the filmmaker's commitment to authenticity. "Brad had a real vision for how he would tell the story," Levinson said. "He immediately started talking about locations, so we went on a preliminary scout to Morocco. Walking through the city of Tangier, Brad knew exactly what he wanted to shoot and I could see the movie taking shape just by the way he perceived things.
