THE LAND BETWEEN
“BEHIND THE SCENES IN GOUROUGOU” – Filmmaker David Fedele and assistant Reda Afirah in the
Gourougou Mountains of northern Morocco – with Yacou Traore, the main protagonist of the film.
“YACOU IN MELILLA” – only days after successfully jumping the highly-militarised fence into the
Spanish enclave of Melilla, Yacou was able to watch himself in the finished film for the first time.
Filmmaker David Fedele accepting the “Special Mention” Award for the film at the
International Film Festival of Cinema and Memory in Nador, Morocco, only a few kilometres
from where the human rights abuses documented in the film continue to occur.
