Moroccan Lights Short documentary , 1995, 40 min.

Picturesque documentary about a long journey made by director Henri Plaat through Southern Morocco. The documentary takes the viewer through shimmering deserts and arid mountains and shows oases and lively Berber villages. Moroccan Lights is a colourful film about blinding beauty and the tender melancholy of decay. The documentary fits in a series of idiosyncratic and extremely visual travelogues that Plaat has made in the last fifteen years. When he films a landscape, Plaat reveals himself to be a painter with his use of form, colour and composition.
