Casablanca Calling

In Morocco, women are being employed as religious leaders - called Morchidat - for the first time, offering advice and guidance in mosques, schools, prisons, and orphanages around the country. The Islam they teach is based on tolerance, compassion and equality. Casablanca Calling follows three exceptional women: Karima is witty, mischievous, and outgoing; Bouchra is powerhouse of energy working in the North; Hannane is a poetic soul - warm, wise, and compassionate, who wants to change people's perceptions of the true teachings of Islam - including non-Muslims's conception of religious guides as 'scary men with beards.'
