synopsis

Residents of a retirement home in a Moroccan town film the world around them. For them, the camera is like a seagull in a blue sky, a promise of freedom and purification. It gives image and sound to their invisible lives. The poet and human rights activist Rachida Madani lends them a voice, washing away past traumas and offering hope for change.

“I see the moving image as a portal to ourselves and our shared experience as we inhabit different moments of collective presence.”
