thank you @alberto, thank you @johncoate !
@oliiive , thanks for the feedback as well.
I see your point, but if you don't mind, I would like to share my vision of the thing, because it's slightly different than what you say in your comment.
First of all, I'm not in capacity to say if the people in Sidi Kaouiki have to get their food from Essaouira. I didn't have the time to check that. but what i can say is that there are some sheeps/goats little herds in Sidi Kaouiki, wich means there is local farming activity somehow. Is there any self sufficient or partially sufficient food growing farm in the village? I don't know. It could be possible though.
We could be impressed by the rural activities and what it offers in terms of self sufficiency, here in europe but anywhere on the planet.
So I'm not sad for them. I'm more curious than sad. Here in Europe and in France, we have many words, and actually a whole semantic, to describe local food cycles: locavore, short-circuits (circuits-courts in french), direct and local, etc etc. There? In Morocco for instance? I don't think this semantic applies. Does that mean that they're not into this kind of movement, naturally or not? I do'nt know. I doubt it.
Here in Europe (especially in Belgium), I guess (for most of us), we don't realize how the chance we have and that some of them in this village doesn't have.
Well, actually, are we that much lucky? We are more than ever overwhelmed under the power of supermarkets and big industrial distribution of overprocessed food. And as you can check in my film, the only thing I found related to food that is industrial in the medina in Essaouira was milk based products. Fruits? Vegetables? Meat? Pastries and breads? Fishes? All sold unprocessed and "fresh" by/in little shops.
So I don't know what to say... I think what you say, and even what I think, should be checked on location with a real, and long, study of such questions.
But I'm definitely not feeling bad for the people in Sidi Kaouiki and Essaouira.They probably have solutions that we don't have... And the other way around
