Synopsis

‘Aziza’ is a documentary on the place that women occupy in the history of decolonization in Morocco. This project interrogates the ways in which official accounts of this history exclude the contribution of women in these struggles. The subject is approached from a personal and autobiographical perspective, the departing point being the recent passing of the director’s grandmother. Tracing a genealogy of resistance, the film collects oral testimonies of different generations of women from the director’s family.
