Sur la planche

Fortnight 2011, Feature film, 1h46

Synopsis

The « board » of the title is multifold: springboard, diving board or pirate plank. This is the story of an imperiled « brotherhood, » the story of a foursome. The story of four girls on the run, made of love, choices, shattered destinies.They are the protagonists of a film noir under the conflicting auspices of the dream of globalization.
Among the countless women peeling shrimp in a factory in Tangiers, two young Moroccan women repeat incessantly the same gestures. Badia and Imane dream of a better life. If only they could find jobs in the textile factories located in the free zone… Rage and desire for escape go hand-in-hand in this poignant and relentless film served up by two splendid actresses.
Javier Martin, selectino commetee
