Meriem Bennani: Mission Teens

Meriem Bennani: Mission Teens

Inspired by teen movies, reality television and web series, this fictional documentary follows the everyday activities of a group of students from Descartes high school, the French high school in Rabat, as they go from classroom to home.

Through the questioning, reflections, and aspirations of the students, the artist, or rather the donkey—her animated avatar behind the camera—investigates the impact of an educational system inherited from French presence in Morocco, which today is reserved for the local elite. Meriem Bennani explores contemporary society, its fractured identities and cultural disparities, and questions of gender and the hegemony of digital technology.
