In early 2016 “Bonne mère”, the first film by actress Hafsia Herzi, will begin shooting in Marseille’s northern districts. Set in a housing estate, the film follows “Nora, a woman in her sixties with inexhaustible energy, watching over her family, her children and their friends.”
“Bonne mère” is produced by Abdellatif Kechiche (Quat’sous Films). He directed Hafsia Herzi in “The Secret of the Grain”, for which she won the César for Most Promising Actress in 2008. For her first film behind the camera she has obtained funding from the Centre National du Cinéma (CNC), the PACA Region and Arte.
