    Directed by: Javier Rioyo and José Luis López-Linares. (Spain, 2011, 58 minutes) Documentary

    A witness to the last European wars of the twentieth century and a refuge for those who were escaping from them, Tangier has always remained open to people of all sorts of cultures, races, customs and religions. Across time, the city has hosted the beat generation, English aristocrats, Italian princesses and writers like Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and Paul Bowles, just as it once welcomed painters Delacroix and Fortuny in the past. In this documentary, the memories and dreams of a unique generation  are interwoven.
  • Las 1001 noches. Noche 8

    October 04, 2018
    El jueves 4 de octubre vuelve Héctor Urién a nuestra sede de Córdoba para embelesarnos con relatos relacionados con el "ingenio" en Las mil y una noches
    Una de las cualidades que más nos sorprenden cuando escuchamos una historia es el ingenio, la capacidad de los personajes para resolver situaciones, para poner a prueba no solo a los personajes de la historia que se está contando sino a nosotros mismos, que de repente nos vemos dentro del juego, analizando opciones y buscando respuestas. El cuento árabe ha desarrollado profusamente este tipo de ficción y en Las mil y una noches se encuentra abundantemente. Función de ingenios, pues, para venir a divertirse con el cerebro despejado y llevarlo de vuelta aliviado de preguntas y respuestas.

    Driss Deiback, the film’s director, will be taking part in a colloquium with the audience to be held after the film screening. This is the second session in the film series which Casa Árabe has devoted to Tangier.
    Directed by:  Driss Deiback (Spain, 2016, 48 min.) Documentary

    1942. It is a time of hunger in the Rif Mountains. A family leaves its house behind and sets off on the exodus leading to Tangier in search of a better life. However, a violent father’s cruelty forces young Mohamed Choukri to run away from home. It becomes a journey of learning. He endures hunger, fear and violence on the tough streets of Tangier and Tetouan. During the nights spent under the stars, he gets a taste of sex and the bitterness of prison. All of this will lead to the birth of a unique, cursed writer, Mohamed Choukri, illiterate until the age of twenty and the author of the famous book For Bread Alone, prohibited in nearly all Muslim countries with the exception of Morocco.
  • Course: Tangier in Spanish literature 

    From July 26, 2018 until October 08, 2018See schedule.
    MADRID
    Casa Árabe headquarters (at Calle Alcalá, 62). See schedule. The price of this course is 8 euros.
    In Spanish.
    Rocío Rojas-Marcos has organized this seminar, a historical overview that will be held in two Thursday sessions taking place on October 18 and 25. You may now sign up.
    Throughout time, the unique history of Tangier has evoked very different sensations among those travelers who have called in at its port. Tangiers as a pretext, as a leitmotif to speak about memory, solitude, freedom or melancholy, without setting aside the first times it appeared in Spanish literature, when Tangiers was the nearest possible representation of “otherness.” For centuries, the “White City” has produced an outstanding amount of literature for just one single city. The mythical aura of Tangiers seems to be boundless, and even the year of 2017 ended with three Spanish novels devoted to the city on the Straits of Gibraltar: Limones negros (Black Lemons), Eva and Niebla en Tánger (Fog in Tangiers). Three novels, three quite different authors and three even more diverse “Tangiers,” because there are as many “Tangiers” as there are people there, and every writer can choose his or her own when giving it form in literature.

    Given this state of affairs, the sessions I plan to give will provide an approach to literature about the city of Tangier. Who has written about it, what city has been chosen by each author, and how in the end has the city imposed itself upon all of these writers to continue surviving above and beyond literary fashions and artistic movements. Tangier’s skin gets shed like that of a venomous snake which thus continues slithering along through its own history, though many writers seem to be bent on taking photographs of the city in the form of words to create a still image of it.

    The course has been organized in the form of two sessions, to be held on the dates of Thursday, October 18 and 25, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Casa Árabe headquarters in Madrid. The registration period will remain open until October 8. To sign up, you must click on the button “Buy Tickets” at the bottom of this page (the entrance fee, with a price of 8 euros, is shown as being for October 18, but this is the full price for the two sessions together). The first ten to register will be given a free ticket to see one of the films in the film series “Tangier, Myth and Reality” to be shown at Casa Árabe from September 28 to October 26.

    Directed by José Ramón Da Cruz  (Spain, 2014, 105 minutes) Documentary

    In this documentary, the director allows testimonials to take precedence over the images. In his words, physical marks (in this case, one could translate this as images) were never the important part, though the emotional marks left behind were (those people who speak from their own memories), allowing the city to get recreated bit by bit through the words of the people who describe it.
