Q&As with director/co-writer Nabil Ayouch

A kaleidoscopic drama, Razzia tells the story of five Moroccans pushed to the fringes in Casablanca by the extremist government. Director Nabil Ayouch contrasts the mythic romance of the classic 1941 film Casablanca with an honest and deeply humanistic portrait of contemporary Moroccans yearning for connection amidst political crisis.  Ayouch and co-writer Maryam Touzani—who also stars in the film—paint a mesmerizing portrait of a city and a meditation on desire and love.
