TETUÁN, THE FILM
“Tetuán” is a story about migrant beings in which cinema, family stories and memory come together as a place of transits and nebulae. Annemarie, Carmelo, Irina and Mohamed are protagonists of a story of dance, photography and life.
“Tetuán” is a creative documentary that, from the present time, investigates concepts such as migration and memory. Showing ‘other images’ and ‘other stories’ of migrants from an anthropological perspective, rescuing the positives of migration and cultural exchange, and exploring the concept of memory are some of the goals of the film.
The will to expose racism and defy stereotypes of different nature is the honest motivation for the starting point of “Tetuán”. The fact that this is a matter of political and social urgency in the world today confirms the universal need to tear the normalization of racism into pieces.
How does the voice, the memory of a migrant person remain among us? What battles do we humans fight in order to survive?
A daughter (the director), guided by her curiosity about the story of her missing father, a migrant man, will take off on a journey of reconstruction and search through the real and the cinematographic lives.
On this trip, Tetouan, Almería and its desert, the streets of Madrid, the Pyrenees, the corners of Basque Country and a small town in Romania on the banks of the Danube, will be witnesses of the story.
