    • Synopsis
    • It’s a true story and a surprisingly outcome of the filmmaker’s previous film “En attendant Passolini” ('Waiting for Pasolini'). To shoot this film, the Moroccan director Daoud Aouled Syad had the sets built in Zagora, a small village in southern Morocco.
      At the end of the shooting, in order to get back their land, inhabitants had removed the entire set, except for the mosque. Some made it into their place of prayer to the detriment of Moha, the land's owner, who since then has not been able to cultivate the land ensuring his survival and that of his family. It is from this story and the resulting polemics that 'La Mosquée' was born, a film made halfway between fiction and reality.
