burnout_-_trailer_-_tiff_2018

The lives of the human beings in BURNOUT are carefully knit together, although they have different backgrounds and life situations. The young Ayoub is a poor shoe shiner with a dream. Jad loves fast cars and continuous silence. His wife is unhappy. Aida is studying medicine and working as a prostitute – until she confronts her privileged customer. Director and scriptwriter Nour Eddine Lakhmari gives us different perspectives from the city of Casablanca, where people’s lives are formed by their social and economic status.

Lakhmari’s view on Morocco is shaped by the years he has lived in Norway. With BURNOUT, he wants to offer a critical look at a “burned out” Moroccan society, where the citizens are fighting for survival in many ways.

Introduction and director present at screenings Tuesday and Wednesday.
