50th Directors’ Fortnight May 9-19, 2018

Much Loved

Fortnight 2015, Feature film, 1h48

Synopsis

Marrakech today. Noha, Randa, Soukaina, Hlima and others live a life of ‘love for sale’. They’re whores, objects of desire. Full of joy and a sense of complicity, dignified and free in their kingdom of women, they overcome the violence of a society that takes advantage of them while at the same time condemning them.

Director

Nabil Ayouch

Nabil Ayouch was born in Paris in 1969. He works in Casablanca and Paris. In 1997, he directed his first feature film Mektoub, followed by Ali Zaoua in 2000. His next film, A Minute of Sun Less, came in 2003, followed in 2008 by Whatever Lola Wants. In 2011, his first documentary My Land, shot in the Middle East, was released. In 2012, his film Horses of God, inspired by the suicide bombings in Casablanca in 2003, was presented at Cannes.
