“A mile in my shoes” by Said Khallaf is the movie that has been selected to represent Morocco in the preselections of “Best Foreign Film” category of the Oscars which will be held in February 2017 in Los Angeles.
The film, which won last February the Golden Palm of the Arab Film Festival and European in Luxor, Egypt, and the Grand Prize of Tanger Film Festival in March, was selected by a committee chaired by the director and producer Noureddine Lakhmari to represent Morocco at the prestigious US film competition.
The movie tells the story of the hard life of Said, played by Amine Naji, a teenager who has always lived in misery and suffering, and who decides to avenge from a cruel and intolerant society … A social film that evokes the social problems stuffing our society: street children, rape, human exploitation, violence against women, outrageous parental authority.
Actress Noufissa Benchehida also takes part in the film, who plays in “Aida” by Driss Mrini which was also presented last year by Morocco to the Oscars 2016.
Perhaps a first prize at the Oscars for a Moroccan film?
