Renault 12

Mohamed El Khatib

France / 2018 / 78' / Italian premiere



A cinematic experience from a documentary material: the death of the director’s mother. Renault 12 is a fragmentary narrative of learning that traces a course of rhythm to its different rituals on both sides of the Mediterranean. Two perspectives of transit then mix, that of a coffin of France towards Morocco, that of a heritage which must pass from Morocco to France. Renault is a french vehicle model very famous in Morocco in the 70s for its velocity in mountains and hostile topography.
