Razak,the Shivaman , a reference of a cultural hyperlink in Morocco.
To be a hyperlink or to be a shivaman, that is the question of Razak
Only few regenerated people as Andrej Tarkovsky stated in his movie ‘Sacrifice’ would be lucky to meet Razak.I mean by regenerated people ,those men or women who would be navigating into beautiful heavens.As near as you approach Razak as far as your imagination goes . He is a true artist with a great frigile sensitivity whose love goes to somewhere in Asia where the first step of Adam traced a divine Godlike man called Buddha.
Razak loves India and its diverse cultural colours . He has a good reason of this love -story because his mother India bosoms his prolific creations and makes him inspiring to all kind of Arts. India , the mother of mankind ,a rich country where everybody goes to pure his or her soul and and blessed by divine Gods when washing their souls into Ganja river or listening to Lata Mangeskhar so as to surmount sufferences or forget pain.
Despite of being difficult to handle , Razak remains a man of great tenderness and exquisite intellect.Rabat cybermen know him quite, intelligent although he does not communicate a lot and chooses his friends carefully .You can not miss him either in a library or in a cinema theatre watching movies especially he is continuously following the events of the New Indian cinema .He has painted very excellent portraits ,written too many chornicles and thanks to his artistic intentions,brilliant stars and writers are emerged on Morocccan media and maistream such as Mouna Fetto, Rachid Nini,Fawzi Saiidi and others. He has also written a book published in canada called “ Au-delà de l’Artifex je dis “.Now , he is writing a monography with Allal and Essafi on Indian cinema .One of his recent meetings were with Susan sarandon in Marrakech , Amitabh Bachan and Joan Baez.
I am deeply impressed about the way he edits his writings in french using a hammer style , imposing his views and opinions to the so called cinema critics who come from sociology and philosophy brances . He thinks that they rather return to their students at universities and leave cinema critics to cinemagoers because their criticism is far away from images and sound.
