Yasmine Benkiran did the film she would have loved to see as a child. With Queens, she couples female determination with a road movie about a getaway through the Moroccan desert, with a touch of magic too. We talk about this need and other apects of the shooting with her in this interview with Angelo Acerbi.

Queens: Casablanca, Morocco. A trio of women with the police on their tail embarks on a long escape that takes them across the rugged red terrain and flower-filled valleys of the Atlas to finally reach the Atlantic ocean.
