FILM SCREENING - Hassan Hajjaj's A Day In The Life of Karima: A Henna Girl

Jun 10 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, 2021

A Day In The Life of Karima: A Henna Girl is the Marrakesh-set documentary that follows Hajjaj’s favorite ‘Kesh Angel’ character Karima, who is a mother, wife, artist, henna artist, local icon and graduate of what he calls “Jamaa Fena: the university of street life”.

Known for breezing through Marrakesh on her bike with her vibrant veils and textile abayas and djabellas fluttering in her wake, Karima is also a normal woman who works eight or ten hours a day. Though his film Hajjaj paints a more complex vision of contemporary Islamic gender roles.

In support of the Hassan Hajjaj’s exhibition VOGUE: The Arab Issue. Alive with colour and patterns, this immersive exhibition brings together five important series developed over the past three decades. This exhibition is organized by Fotografiska and produced in collaboration with Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris.
