«Our Dark 70s» is an archival-footage film which reveals the spirit of optimism and the artistic production of an era that was censored all too soon. Assembling fragments of works (film, photography, audio) and blending them with interview statements by the protagonists, the film tells the story of this very unique period in Morocco’s history known as “The Years of Lead”.
