  • Pegasus

    2010. Morocco. Written and directed by Mohamed Mouftakir. With Majdouline Drissi, Sadia Ladib, Driss Roukh. Zineb is an emotionally exhausted psychiatrist assigned to treat a young pregnant woman who was found in the street and who believes she is being stalked by the “Lord of the Horse.” As the traumatized girl slowly opens up to Zineb—her past revealed through evocative flashbacks—her story awakens repressed regions of Zineb’s troubled mind, and the women’s realities merge into a fever dream of fear, deceit, and denial. Mouftakir’s tense and visually striking psychological thriller took top honors at Africa’s 2011 FESPACO festival. 104. In Arabic; English subtitles min.

In the Film exhibition Global Lens, 2012
