khalid Akali - The yoke of Tetuan -

Written by Allal El Alaoui

Interesting artistic meeting with Khalid Akali in Oujda last spring . The event was the International Maghreb  Film Festival . Khalid introduces his short film called «  Some of lies » a very original and educational  shortfilm,already  primed  beningly ; the best female role .

Kaliloun mina Al Kadib’ literay means ‘ Some of Lies »  is about a little school girl haunted by lies and at the end ,she finds herself trapped in her lies and she realizes she has taken the wrong path ,which is of lying, and that the truth is a pawerful tool to face life .

Enver since that cinematic event which has taken place in Oujda, i never want to leave khalid especially he  is a man of wit , literature and intellect .What amazes me of him, his deeper  love with Sordou district around  Tetuan from which his novel  is inspired delicately .

Akali talks a lot about his native city ,Tetuan  his beloved white pipeon  and in fact he has written a beautiful  novel  called ‘ Atyaf  Al Beit Al Kadim » ‘Shadows of the old house » in Arabic and it is all about child memories mingled with mysterious characters such as Rakoush  and his charismatic and powerful father ,omnipresent in the novel ,along with other personnalities like women whom through their browdery , Khalid becomes voiyeur and circulates his little body around women beautiful thighs  only to  find out the world of sexuality and sensitivity .
