The bride of the North

Voices from Tangier

A portrait of a legendary and controversial city, historical bridge between Africa and Europe, in full economic expansion. The question is: which are the real changes to which people aspire? In Tangier, as in many Moroccan cities, following the mass mobilizaton of the “February 20th movement”, a profound political transformation is taking place. An Arab Spring less visible if compared to other North African and Middle Eastern countries, but just as important. The voices of men and women who live the magic and the contradictions of Tangier show how in the huge project for the city’s growth there is little space left for basic rights, culture, social development. And women are, once again, the most discriminated subject.
