Achoura (Achoura La Nuit Des Enfants)


Australian Premiere

Somewhere in the Moroccan countryside, four children scare the living daylights out of each other, just for fun. In a house that is rumoured to be the dwelling of ghosts, one of them mysteriously disappears. A quarter-century later, the three remaining friends bump into their long-lost playmate. His reappearance coincides with a series of child kidnappings. Could he have something to do with that?

Achoura is the second feature film by French-Moroccan director Talal Selhami. Dissatisfied with the lack of genre movies in the land of his forebears, he vowed to make the first Moroccan creature feature.
