Headbang Lullaby

A feature film by Hicham Lasri

111min - color - 2017


Casablanca, June 11, 1986, day of the world cup

After yet another blunder, an embittered cop, Daoud, is sent by his dissatisfied superiors to spend a day on a bridge between two warring neighborhoods to protect the hypothetical passage of the Royal procession. This seemingly normal day made of absurd waiting, improbable encounters and brutal poetry takes place under the giant shadow of a messianic monarch whose passage disturbs the delicate balance of this motley population.
