Morocco : Under the Spell of Horses .

The film is part of the series "Under the Spell of Horses". It contains spectacular images from one of these Fantasias and documents the life of a Berber family. The Slimani family has two horses: a workhorse and a high-class Fantasia stallion. It is the family's pride and joy. Most farmers can only afford one riding horse, if at all. In a country as dry as Morocco green fodder is expensive — indeed, it takes as much to keep one horse as it does to keep a whole family. But the horse is still considered part of the family by the Slimanis. Director Lisa Eder and her team accompany Lachsen Slimani as he makes his way through the mountainous terrain of the Middle Atlas to the outskirts of the desert. It is the only way Lachsen will be able to make his and his son's dream come true, of riding together at a fantasia in the royal city of Meknes...
