Screening at Bertha House

DFA’s docLOVE in partnership with the Centre for Humanities Research, UWC and the PESP4 and National Film and Video Foundation invite you to join us for a screening of “Mother of all Lies” directed by Asmae El Moudir

Moroccan filmmaker Asmae El Moudir employs an inventive mode of storytelling to uncover layers of personal and political history. Much of her family’s past is veiled in secrecy. In search of answers, she enlists the building talents of her father, Mohamed, to construct a scale model of their Casablanca street. Around this playful space, El Moudir assembles family and friends for an epic session of group therapy that veers between comedy and tragedy.

The Mother of All Lies is the Winner of the Best Director award in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard and co-recipient of the festival’s Best Documentary Prize.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see this remarkable film at Bertha Cinema. Free popcorn! After the screening there will be a discussion hosted by docLOVE team and the CHR.

DATE: 28 February 2024.

DFA docLOVE is supported by NFVF PESP4.
