The copying of Moroccan works of foreign scripts highlights the role of reading committees.
Allegations of stealing scripts for foreign works and copying Moroccan works broadcast on national channels, whether during the programming of the holy month or throughout the year, are prosecuted. This forces those interested in technical issues to think about the role assigned to the responsible bodies that approve these projects in order to benefit from manufacturing transactions.
And Moroccan art historian Abdel Karim Wakrim, in a statement to Hespress, said creators of Moroccan television works have been repeatedly caught red-handed as they shamelessly stole the efforts of others without disposing of them or mentioning the source from which they took their stolen work.
Wakarim justified this move by saying that it was mainly due to the fact that the production companies preferred to deal with semi-screenwriters. Because they do not require a decent amount of money, unlike real screenwriters.
The Moroccan art critic blamed the reading committees, which he says are sometimes condoning and sometimes made up of people far from the field who lack the competence to evaluate and evaluate submitted business projects.
Vakrim went on to say that clientelism and nepotism are present in this matter, and this is what makes the production companies themselves a constant presence in their projects, even if they prove to represent mediocrity every year and every season of Ramadan.
For his part, Moroccan screenwriter and director Abd al-Ilah al-Jawahiri said that it is difficult for reading committees to keep track and control all the scripts submitted to them because sometimes some screenwriters bypass scripts that are adapted or reproduced from previous works and presented in Moroccan costume. without much creativity.
Al-Jawahiri continued in a statement to Hespress that these responsible commissions sometimes pay attention and sometimes don’t. However, this is due to the ethics of the screenwriter, who is administratively and ethically committed to having the work be his own production.
The Moroccan screenwriter and director called on the responsible authorities and committees not to accept or reject as punishment the work of every person who proves the right to submit a copied or stolen work.
