‘Tribute to Dalila Ennadre - Screening 'El Batalett'’

19 Nov.'22
- 19:00

Past and Present of Arab Societies through Women’s Lenses

​​​​​​​The action takes place in the heart of the old Medina in Casablanca. The film portrays a group of women who have lived there since childhood. Together, they offer a complex image of the popular Moroccan woman, a modern and urban woman, far removed from the orientalist clichés that describe her as submissive or lustful. Through the eyes of these Batalett (heroines) who recreate a small world of their own every day, we experience major events in Morocco at the beginning of the 21st century.

Dalila Ennadre (1966) was born in Casablanca. She is self-taught and has made several documentary films on subjects related to Moroccan society. Her films have won awards at documentary film festivals around the world. She was a producer at Laya Prod until her death from a long illness while editing her last film in May 2020.

The screening is preceded by an introduction by Karima Saïdi (in French).
