You Are All Captains

by Oliver Laxe
2010, 79’, Spain/Morocco, 16mm to digital, Arabic (Dharija) with English subtitles

Can film save the world? In his feature debut, Spanish filmmaker Oliver Laxe (Mimosas; Fire Will Come) travels to Tangier, Morocco, to teach filmmaking to a class of children living in a foster home. Exploring the effects of neocolonialism and building upon the traditions of docufiction, You Are All Captains is a marvelous reflection on the politics of cinema.
