Maryam Touzani’s first feature film “Adam” won the Audience Award at the Ashland Independent Film Festival in the USA.
The film “Adam”, by director Maryam Touzani has just added a new award to its credits. It has just received the Audience Award at the Ashland Independent Film Festival in the USA. Yet another award in addition to the ones received at the Cannes film festival in the “Un Certain Regard” category and at the Angoulême French Film Festival (FFA) to name a few.
As a reminder, through “Adam”, the Moroccan director tells the ordeal of two women, Samia and Abla (played by Lubna Azabal and Nisrin Erradi) who met in the Medina of Casablanca. One is a single mother, pregnant from a relationship out of wedlock. The other is a young widow and mother of an 8-year-old girl who tries to forget her grief by preparing pastries. A striking film produced but also written by Maryam Touzani, who is now a member of the Academy of Oscars in the “Scriptwriter” category.
