Hassan Hajjaj To Premiere Documentary About Badass Moroccan ‘Henna Girl’
After two years of working on a Marrakesh-set documentary project, Moroccan pop art photographer/filmmaker Hassan Hajjaj will soon unveil his new documentary, A Day In The Life Of Karima: A Henna Girl. In the lead-up to the film’s world premiere at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in May, Hajjaj has shared a high adrenaline trailer and an accompanying music video for an artist by the name of Koma. From the short clip, the film looks to be a live action version of Hajjaj’s iconic Kesh Angels photographs of Moroccan biker women. The project follows the badass Marrakesh adventures of Karima, who the trailer reveals is a wife, mother, artist and graduate from “Jamaa Fena: the university of street life.” Hajjaj explained his excitement about the film’s premiere over Facebook:
