CASABLANCA CALLING 

A documentary on female imams followed by a talk with director Rosa Rogers and Iman Lechkar (Chairholder Fatima Mernissi Chair, VUB)

Casablanca Calling is the story of a quiet social revolution in Morocco. In a country where over 60% of women have never been to school, a new generation of women have started work as official Muslim leaders.They are called Morchidat or spiritual guides.

The documentary follows three Morchidat – Hannane, Bouchra and Karima – as they set out to change their country, starting at street level. The Morchidat have a mission: to teach an Islam based on compassion, tolerance and equality, and to separate its true teachings from prejudice, misinterpretation and misunderstanding. Their work takes them into mosques, schools, homes, orphanages, prisons, and out in the countryside. They support the education of women and girls’; campaign against early marriage; and encourage young people to build a better Morocco, rather than dreaming of life in the West.
