The hunt of Abdelkader Benali

A documentary about writer Abdelkader Benali, for whom writing and running are inseparable.

The film is about Abdelkader Benali’s writings and his passion for running. Why would a writer run? Why would a runner write? Who is the man behind all the essays, columns, poems, plays, short stories, novels and romans? In this documentary we follow him in the Netherlands, on his journey through his country of birth Morocco and the Middle-east.
