Crossing borders

In 2007, the German filmmaker Arnd Wächter brought four college-age Americans to Morocco to join four Moroccans of similar age for a weeklong tour of their country. What resulted was a document of conversations interspersed with compelling travelogue images (not, fortunately, restricted to the most scenic quarters).

The group’s sometimes enlightening, sometimes fractious exchanges touch on subjects like Islamic perceptions of the West and vice versa, the war in Iraq and the role of women in Arab society.

Written, produced and directed by Arnd Wächter; directors of photography, Jorge Sousa and Paul Pryor; edited by Mr. Sousa, Jose Iglesias and Mr. Wächter; music by Rhett Brewer; Sound design by Dov Waterman; released by Morocco Exchange
