27th Med Film Festival: Moroccan Short Film ‘Le Départ’ by Said Hamich Awarded in Rome

The Moroccan short film “Le Départ” by director Said Hamich won the “Methexis” award in the international short movie competition at the 27th edition of the Med Film Festival, which runs until November 14 in Rome. This film deals with the social impact of immigration, a phenomenon that unites all the countries of the Mediterranean. Through Adil, an 11 year old child, the director has conveyed the suffering of families, one of whose members chooses to leave his homeland in search of a better future. “Moroccan cinema, carried in recent years by young creators and artists, has made significant progress,” president of Med Film, Ginella Vocca, told MAP. Moroccan films are now present in force in the various international film events thanks to the variety of themes and the originality of the new generation, said Vocca, welcoming the close collaboration between Italian cultural actors and the Embassy of the Kingdom in Rome, which ensures the promotion of the Moroccan artistic scene in all its dimensions.
