When a great filmmaker introduces you to the director of a film he's produced, you can't help but be intrigued.

This week, Nabil Ayouch, the director of "Horses of God" has brought such talent to our attention: Maryam Touzani - a fellow Moroccan filmmaker.

We are looking forward to screening her 18 minute short "When They Slept", a reflection about death tonight.

In the film, Sara, a sensitive and mischievous eight year old, lets neither death nor tradition come between her and her grandfather.

The film won Best Film in the Short Film category at the 2012 Festival of Sebou, and the Special Jury Award at the 2012 Huesca International Film Festival.
