(2020, DCP, 115m, Morocco/France/Belgium, Arabic with English subtitles) dir Ismaël El Iraki w/Khansa Batma, Ahmed Hammoud, Saïd Bey. Narrative Feature. In hellish Casablanca a car-crash sets ablaze a burning, passionate love story between has-been rocker Larsen and the streetwise Rajae. The only hope for their blooming romance is to skip this ferocious town. Is there a way out of this crazy Moroccan underworld with its menagerie of sadistic cops, venomous snakes, metal concerts and shotgun-wielding modern-day Calamity Janes? For these punk Romeo and Juliet, maybe the answer lies in a song—the one they’ve been writing and dreaming together: Zanka Contact.
