L'enfermement Identitaire Dans Le Cinema Marocain Moderne

  • Adil Bouyahya Centre de formation pour les métiers de l'éducation, Fes, Morocco


This article analyses the Moroccan cinema during the period (1990- 2000) since it focuses on a central issue of its discursive and esthetic unity. Thus, the article addresses the question of confinement. In other words, in this paper we seek to reflect on the unifying desire and the confined collective identity. In fact, this cinematography deals mainly with a quasiarchaic Moroccan society which is confined in the rigidity of an Arab- Islamic identity. Besides, we adopt am esthetic scenographic approach to delineate the Moroccan society's imprisonment within the borders of immutable values. In this paper, the main protagonists in the movies under scrutiny do not enjoy their status as modern heroes; on the contrary, they only access this role when they are deemed as desire objects in quest for a space of freedom and liberty.
