The CIDEAL Foundation and Casa Árabe are organizing this film series with the support of AECID, to be held in January 2021 in a hybrid live and online format.

The phenomenon of violent radicalization is a reality that affects contemporary societies in both the Arab-Muslim world and the West. This shared problem has complex roots and therefore needs to be addressed from a multidimensional perspective. The language of film often makes it possible, through fiction or documentaries, to better illustrate the different manifestations of this phenomenon and, above all, to understand the individuals who form part of the processes leading them to violence.

In order to provide a space for reflection and debate on this issue, the CIDEAL Foundation and Casa Árabe are have organized, with the support of the AECID, the film series “Coexistence and the Prevention of Violent Radicalization,” to be held in January 2021 in a hybrid live and online format.

    The Sidi Moumen settlement in Casablanca. Shanty towns, misery, youth delinquency and few aspirations in life. A powder keg in which the tension can be felt at every turn, making it the ideal place to sow the seeds of hatred and promote the growth of Islamic fundamentalism.
