EYE International - your Dutch film connection
Rabat by Jim Taihuttu and Victor Ponten


Twenty-something Nadir’s father orders him to drive a taxi from Amsterdam to Rabat. On departure day, his close friends Abdel and Zakaria hop into the car to accompany Nadir on his trip across Europe. The expedition unexpectedly gives them the opportunity to discuss their long friendship and their, partly shared, future plans in detail. Moreover, the new worlds that pass before their eyes yield inspiring encounters.  But the closer the friends get to Morocco, the more the mutual tensions rise.
