Faouzi Bensaidi (b. 1967, lives and works in Casablanca and Paris) is an artist and filmmaker from Meknes who began directing for the stage and has directed films since 1997. He has worked in many genres, infusing elements ranging from enigmatic detachment to lush choreography with subtle commentaries on human relationships and contemporary Moroccan society. His short films The Wall and The Rain have won prizes at the Cannes International Film Festival and the Venice International Film Festival. WWW, What a Wonderful World, a witty hired-assassin thriller based in contemporary Casablanca, is his second feature film.
"Man’s worlds / World’s men" is Faouzi Bensaidi’s first-ever visual art installation. This experimental project develops situations, images, and sounds, building upon a mixture of footage shot but never used for his feature film "WWW, What a Wonderful World" as well as different sequences from it. Here, Bensaidi juxtaposes the image with reality, using the vocabulary of cinema and theater to create a visual art installation that incorporates live elements.
