Casablanca Calling is an intimate portrait of three Morchidat, female religious preachers, based in Morocco.
Their stories illustrate a society in transition and a mission to educate a nation as they preach the virtues of tolerance, compassion and equality.
Karima is young and outgoing; in the capital Rabat, she relishes working with young people. Bouchra is a powerhouse of energy working in Larache in the north and she is determined to change the culture of misogyny and champion girls’ education. Hannane is warm and compassionate, working to explain the true teachings of Islam and expose superstition, misinterpretation and blind adherence to tradition.
In this film, we follow these three Morchidat as they work in mosques, schools and prisons around the country.
