THE CINEPHILE RESIDENCE
The residence takes place over 6 days and 5 nights, from October 5 to 10, 2019. Two to three screenings per evening are held outdoor at DarZahia’s garden. Each screening is introduced by Marc Lanteri and followed by discussions with all participants. During meals you may continue to debate, or not, while enjoying local cuisine prepared at the garden with fresh products from the market. The rest of the time, you have the choice: enjoy the garden and its swimming corridor, read a book in one of the hammocks in the shade of the olive trees or discover the Taroudant medina and its souks… And also many other things that you will be surprised to discover when coming at DarZahia.
* Marc Lanteri could not escape being in love with cinema. Born in Cannes, he grew up interested in its film festival since very young. From now on, living in Paris, he works as a research consultant in communication, strategy and geopolitics. Accredited to the Cannes Film Festival for more than 10 years, he writes and publishes regularly on cinema, its creativity and influence. True to his first love, he continues to attend festivals and movie theaters, in France and abroad.
WHERE DO I LODGE?
In a luxuriant garden of 4000 m2, with a 33 meters long swimming pool, amid fields of olive trees in full nature facing the Atlas mountains. You sleep alone or together in a dream pavilion in paradise. You fall asleep by candlelight to the sound of crickets and wake up in the light of day to the song of the lark and bulbul in the gardens.
