Amar Amghari

I was born in 2002 and spent my childhood between France and Morocco. I've always been interested in cinema, but it wasn't until high school that I really discovered it. In 2016, I joined the jury of the Festival des Cinémas d'Afrique du Pays d'Apt. There, I discovered cinematographies little known in the West and brand new representations of Africa and the Maghreb. I also discovered documentaries, which have become an essential tool of expression, creativity and, above all, resistance. For the 20th edition, I'm lucky enough to be the president of the Feature Fiction jury. At the end of high school, I wanted to learn more about the world, so I started studying history. I graduated in 2023 and joined the festival team. But most importantly, I finally set out to write my first feature-length documentary: Mossiba.

Mossiba : Conseil de femmes

In Casablanca, three sisters are playing cards in a living room. Three sisters who have sworn never to reveal the truth. In a family where lies have been piled on top of each other in earthy layers that have finally crumbled away. Because these are women's issues and we had to act quickly and discreetly. These three sisters are my aunts. And I, Mossiba, the catastrophe, have come to destroy everything.
