We Could Be Heroes won the Grand Prix of "Best International Documentary" in Toronto Hot Docs and is currently a candidate for Oscar nomination. This is the first time a Moroccan documentary wins its awards.
We Could Be Heroes was shot for 4 years. It has been four years since the movie crew gathered to capture key moments in the ordinary and extraordinary daily life of Safi disabled young people who dreamed of a world beyond the limiting obstacles of their city. 4 years of personal sacrifice, joy and tears for the crew of the cinema and their subjects, who are proud to share with the public.
The blending of poetry and politics, we can be heroes, repeats the struggle of the double champion Paralympic Azzedine Nouiri for a better Morocco where he and his siblings with disabilities could live well. This is not a film about disability, but what Morocco must offer to its young people who want to go.
We could be heroes is a tender trip to the center of this one that joins us all: hope.
The screening of "We Could Be Heroes" was held in Casablanca on 13 November 2018 in the presence of the Olympians and the documentary will be broadcast on Sunday 18 November at 21:30 at 2am.
