After 10 years of forced enlistment in the army, Faiçal Ben is now part of this young generation of Moroccan filmmakers that can be counted on. Self-taught, he has finally found in the 7th Art what he was looking for for so long: his freedom of expression and creation. Having started his career as an editor, then as an assistant director on several institutional films, short films and web series, he is now involved in the direction of several films for cultural and artistic events. At the same time, he tries his hand at screenwriting for his own short and feature film projects, and for Moroccan television series.Following two experimental films (Décalage, 2015 and Confusion, 2016), he directed his first short fiction film, Alter Ego, produced in 2016 and selected in several international festivals. His second short film, Ales, produced in early 2018 received the Special Mention of the Jury at the 19th National Film Festival of Tangier and continues his tour of festivals internationally.In post-production of his third short film (Femme à Clefs, 2018), Faiçal is now devoted to writing his first feature film "Barzakh".


The year he turns 20, Hani learns that he has been accepted to the school of fine arts but that he must enter military school in order to follow the path his father has imagined for him. It is then a long quest for emancipation that starts for this young Moroccan, through fragments of life marked by this ambition to transform his destiny
