Poster of Zéro

Tribute to Moroccan cinema

In collaboration with the Marrakech International Film Festival

In presence of the director

Amine Bertale, a.k.a “Zero”, is a simple cop who spends most of his time reporting citizen complaints and pacing the streets of Casablanca with Mimi, a 22-year-old prostitute. He lives in a perpetual confrontation with his disabled father and with his superior, a chief-commissioner from whom he encounters constant humiliation. Facing his oppressive and dissolute everyday life, Zero decides to turn the page of a past tainted by cowardice, fear and inferiority complex by searching a missing 15-year-old girl in the huge metropolis. And so begins his crusade against a hard and ruthless world, perverted by money and power.
