Film notes

"Mazwra" Another Approach to Rape:
It is difficult, if not impossible, to delineate the various types of rape within society, as this phenomenon takes several forms in societal processes and only physical violence remains the predominant one, A sexual instinct that destroys the body.
However, the camera, which gave birth to this short film "Mazwra" has artistically treated this phenomenon far from the technique which only records an image.
Indeed, this same camera uses symbolic and aesthetic approaches that touch senses and sensations instead of showing them directly using aesthetic tools such as the technique of reflection and shadows, which has given another dimension Thus transporting the receiver to other universes engulfed in the imaginary to touch feelings and sensations instead of shocking him or lacking modesty.
From "Mazwra" the actual via "Mezorah" the literary text and "Mazwra" the poem has "Mazwra" the script and then "Mazwra" the film, a journey of suffering hard work in order to translate the word into image.
