Karima – A Day In the Life of a Henna Girl

Moroccan pop art photographer/filmmaker Hassan Hajjaj presents his documentary, A Day In The Life Of Karima: A Henna Girl. Following the badass Marrakech adventures of Karina, a wife, mother and artist, creating henna tattoos for tourists in the bustling Medina, the film explores the theme of gender in contemporary Islamic culture. In Hajjaj’s own words, “I wanted to transfer that energy that I have in my studio and express it here”. The film screening will be introduced by Hajjaj himself and followed by a conversation with the film’s subject Karima, who will also be doing Henna tattoos on site.
