FRA/BEL/TUN/MAR | 2012 | dir. Nabil Ayouch, with Abdelhakim Rachi, Abdelilah Rachid, Hamza Souidek

A gripping chronicle of the transformation of two carefree young Casablancan hustlers into terrorists, Horses of God has a sweep and grandeur seldom seen in Arab pictures. Inspired by the 2003 Casablanca suicide bombings – the deadliest terrorist attacks in Morocco’s history – Ayouch aptly translates Mahi Binebine’s searing text into an intimate epic of debilitating poverty, violence and lost innocence without losing empathy for the broken central characters.

Followed by a Q&A with author Mahi Binebine
