Once ... Agadir

Top of page

The city of Agadir on the north coast of Africa was struck by an earthquake in 1960. This film, made by an expatriate Moroccan who lost family and friends in the disaster, is a memorial to that tragedy and to the past he left behind when he came to North America. Partly allegorical, it employs varying techniques to offset reality from fantasy sequences.

1971, 27 min 25 s
