Rabat – Ouarzazate continues to attract productions all over the world, thanks to its breathtaking landscapes and booming film industry.
“The Moroccan Hollywood” has welcomed the adventure TV show “Off Roads” and one of its participants, Miss Universe 2016, also crowned Miss France the same year, Iris Mittenaere, as reported by 2M. The 25-year-old model already visited other Moroccan cities, such as Essaouira and Marrakech back in 2016.
This adventurous show is taking place at the Ecolodge Oued Noujoum in the Fint valley, fifteen kilometers from the windy city Essaouira. Located in the heart of a mountain circuit, the site offers unbeatable raw nature views to its guests.
Ouarzazate has a long-established relationship with cinema. Many notable directors maintain an obsession with the magnificent landscapes, including Orson Welles, Ridley Scott, and David Lean.
Many memorable historical movies and television shows have been filmed in the area, including Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Gladiator (2000), The Sheltering Sky (1990), Game of Thrones (2013) Prison Break (2015), Sherlock (2016), and The Nine (2017).
