“Aammi” is Nassim Abassi’s fourth film as Producer, Screenwriter and Film director. Its World Premiere was held at the Marrakech International Film Festival.
Known for its biting social criticism, My Uncle is a humorous, entertaining film that does not shy away from addressing cultural struggles in the modern world. Alia is a struggling actress living in Rabat with her two roommates. As she attempts to navigate her way in cinema – in spite of the negative perceptions of women in the acting profession – she remains diligently optimistic that she will become a famous actress.
One day her Uncle Abderraouf, who she barely knows, visits her from out of town. As a result of his visit, Alia’s life is thrown into a comedic confusion of circumstances as she juggles hosting her uncle and pursuing her acting career, while facing problems with her fiancé and his family. Uncle Abderraouf is played by the beloved and legendary comic artist, 80-year old Abderrahim Tounsi, who created a Moroccan Chaplin-style character that was hugely popular in the 1970s and early 80s.
