Myriam Bakir


Myriam Bakir, whose parents are Moroccan, was born and raised in Paris. After having directed two short films in France, she directed her first Moroccan short film, Samia (1998). Her first feature film Agadir-Bombay was released in 2011. With Mothers, Myriam Bakir makes her first documentary film.

The director leaves the fiction and refers to the reality, that of the single mothers in Morocco supported by Mahjouba Edbouche. The film confronts the latter's action, the fate of these women and the law that condemns them.
