Where the Desert Meets Mountains
Said Saad-Eddine, Morocco
Where the Deserts Meets Mountains is a sentimental and intimate documentary where we discover the last nomadic families in their community and their stunning environment while sharing the memories and stories of a nomad who left his old way of living decades ago to settle in the industrial Casablanca.
The parallel between these two stories and these two environments draw a picture of a dying community in a society that is in perpetual transition between a traditional way of life and modernity.
