Morocco by Stian Rekdal

It’s Video of the Week time again, and we’ve got another gem here from the mysterious and beautiful land of Morocco.

Morocco has long been associated with artistic inspiration, with titans of 20th Century art and culture like Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac all drawing inspiration from Morocco’s buzzing cities and wild, arid landscapes. But it’s also been used extensively by film-makers, with films like The Last Temptation of Christ, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Lawrence of Arabia and the 1951 production of Othello all being filmed here, along with many others. And when you see the footage included here in our Video of the Week, it’s hardly surprising!

We’re in total agreement with Stian about this one – it’s definitely best viewed in full-screen HD! And just in case you plan on doing a tour of Morocco and doing a bit of a re-enactment, here is a list of the locations featured in the video: Marrakech, Ait Benhaddou, Dades Gorge, Erg Chebbi, Fez, Meknes, Chefchaouen, El Jadida, Essaouira and Legzira beach.
