World Nomads Morocco
Under the High Patronage of
His Majesty King Mohammed VI
Sous le Haut Patronage de
Sa Majesté le Roi Mohammed VI
FIAF’s annual World Nomads Festival is a New York City
destination that celebrates 21st-century transculturalism
through the arts while advancing critical thinking and
dialogue among cultures. The integrated platform offers
opportunities for an exchange of ideas and artistic expression
among traditional and contemporary cultures. The Festival’s
fourth edition arrives this May at a historic time to celebrate
the many facets of Morocco.
Morocco is recognized worldwide for its distinctive and
layered cultural identity. The country’s unique geographical
location has made it a crossroad for ancient trade routes,
and continues to contribute to its importance as a migratory
highway for ideas and peoples.
Today’s Morocco shines as a hub of traditional and modern
creative expression where ancient cultural practices thrive
while innovations are woven into vibrant contemporary
artistic forms. The Festival will explore its parallel ancient/
modern culture, sustainability, women, and the environment.
It is presented by FIAF in partnership with leading Moroccan
and U.S. cultural institutions.

Building on the stellar accomplishments
of veteran directors of past decades, a new
generation of filmmakers has emerged
in the past ten years, offering a fresh
and bold cinematic voice, engaged with
the complexities of present-day Morocco.
This series highlights contemporary issues
that pervade artistic production in Morocco:
the legacy of the years of political repression,
undocumented workers’ migration to
Europe, Casablanca as an urban metropolis,
and Morocco’s increasing commitment to
cultural diversity.

Casa Negra offers a raw portrayal of the life
of young unemployed Moroccans living
on the margins of society, tackling social
issues never openly discussed in Morocco.
This highly controversial film was selected
as the country’s entry to the 2010 Oscars.
Winner of two awards at Cannes, this beautifully
wrought portrait of intergenerational conflict
during Ramadan explores how faith, gender,
and family so strongly shape the people
we become as adults. Absorbing and deeply
reflective.
