Youness Abeddour is a young film-maker from Fez whose work is taking him places. As one of the first students to graduate from an innovative documentary making course in Fez, he has directed two films and is set to show his first one at a conference in Prague.
Youness, 23, showed his new documentary to an audience for the first time last Thursday. Made with fellow Cultural Studies students from Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University, My Neighbor…the Jew was a thought provoking piece which follows on from his first film Moroccan Judaism: A Culture in Danger.
“I completed my BA in English studies in 2009 on “The Presence of the Mellah in Morocco” The current one I am working on is on “The Representation of Moroccan Jews in Moroccan Cinema” said Youness. “My thesis was 100 pages long and is only accessible to a small group of people. But now I have learned documentary film techniques, I can transmit the same message in 30 minutes and I hope it will be seen much more widely.”
