Something greatly missed by many foreigners is the experience of watching a film on the big screen, in the dark, slouched in a red velvet chair. Unfortunately cinema in Morocco was something that went out of fashion as quickly as it came in. Last week Culture Vultures took a trip over to Rex cinema to see what its all about…and loved it. Currently showing is the Fez shot film Mchaouchi . For those who wish to indulge in an old Moroccan tale and recognise many of the settings and props (that you may even own yourself) C.V. recommends this film and the venue. Screenings are at 15 h,17;30 h and 21:15 h at an entrance fee of 20dh. Take your own refreshments and a friend.

Tafajight is a small berber town in the middle atlas mountains; a three hour twisting road trip from Sefrou. This last weekend seFest and Marion Weidner, (Tafajight based Peace Corps volunteer) collaborated on a project to revive the neddy ( women’s community centre) that has been almost untouched since its construction was completed a few years ago. seFest, a contemporary arts association based in Sefrou was invited to lead a knitting workshop. Knit4peace is a collaborative art project with the aim of promoting peace by collectively knitting pistol shaped sculptures that are exhibited as one piece. Thus far Knit4peacwe has travelled to Mexico, Spain, Britain and Morocco involving more than 140 participants.
