Haggard the sleeping child


Plot

In Atlas Mountains, Zeinab (Mounia Osfour), realises she's pregnant when her husband migrates to Europe along with other men from the village. Her mother-in-law convinces her to sleep the foetus, in keeping with an old white magic tradition very spread in Maghribian rural world. According to Kassari, this plot-point serves as the "luminous point that sheds light on the situation of these women who have remained alone in the country, facing the absence of their men," which, as stated by Florence Martin, presents the viewer with "the womanly gaze on male emigration."
