Camera/Woman (2012) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Camera/Woman.
In Morocco, Khadija supports her family by documenting wedding parties—as a woman, she’s permitted inside the celebrations where men are not allowed—yet she struggles with negative perceptions of her newfound occupation. After years of a bad marriage, Khadija and her eleven-year-old son moved in with her parents. Though her family depends on the money her job brings in, her mother and brother do not approve of the late nights that are required of Khadija as she attends the events of others. But if she were to quit, who would support the family? The self-assuredness and fulfillment Khadija finds in her work is met with painful isolation at home. We follow Khadija inside vivid celebrations and witness fragile moments of domestic frustration as she carefully navigates the needs of clients, friends’ desires, and obligations to her family.
