“The Green March” is 350 000 participants, 350 000 stories.
They are all heading towards the same and unique goal, the fate of all people, the future of an entire nation. They have all responded to the call of their Monarch. They all started this peaceful march to re-conquer their land under Spanish occupation.
“The Green March” aims to be a choral film, presenting the intertwined fates of a handful of men and women, sharing the same objective: to fight for the freedom of their colonized territory.
“The Green March” tells the story of a mother, Zhor, who risked her life 40 years ago by joining to the march. Her objective was to give birth to her child on her late husband’s land, the occupied Moroccan Sahara. This story is an intersection of different characters, all complementary to one another since they are all driven by the same dream, which is to contribute to the construction of modern Morocco.
The film is a vibrant tribute to all these women and men who participated in making Morocco be the great country it is today.
This movie is only a drop of water in this human tide that have walked through the doors of the occupied Moroccan Sahara.
