Jean Genet, our father of the flowers
(Documentary, 60’, Morocco)
Under the benevolent shadow of Jean Genet, buried in Morocco, this film is a dialogue between the living and the dead, an invitation to bring those realms together, between silent humanist revolt and poetic elegy.
Dalila Ennadre was born in 1966 in Casablanca. As a self-taught filmmaker, she has made several documentaries on the struggle for Human and Women’s Rights in Morocco. Her award-winning films have been shown at Category A festivals, on television, at universities, and in neighbourhood associations. She returned to France where she schooled her daughter and began to live between France and Morocco, where she made all her films and was directing her latest film “Jean Genet our Father of the Flowers”. Dalila Ennadre left this world on May 14, 2020. Our commitment to finish this film is both a professional and moral duty. In order to honour her memory and her work.
