This book presents Léa Morin‘s research into the first, long forgotten film by Moroccan filmmaker Mostafa Derkaoui, About Some Meaningless Events (1974), which led to its recent restoration and international distribution. Far from being confined to a cinematographic history, this “book-archive, book-investigation, book-action” sketches out, from the multiple paths opened up by the film, a constellation of micro-histories which are reflections and proposals for narratives on the cultural, artistic and political Morocco of 1974.
