The desert: a popular movie location. Can its inhabitants be the stars? This atmospheric, image-driven documentary puts them front and centre. For more than a century, the Moroccan city of Ouarzazate and its bone-dry countryside have provided the backdrop for countless international film productions, and local people have served as mute “desert extras.” Filmmakers Michal Madracki, Maciej Madracki and Gilles Lepore devote this unique film to them, blurring the lines between reality and fiction.IN COMPETITIONPresented by Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM)With the support of Centre Culturel Marocain
