Theme 2: Sketch of the cartoonist Mohamed Filali 
Mohamed Filali, this native of Essaouira in 1949, at the age of 19, decided to "go up" to Rabat to seek his fortune there, armed only with his lost talents. We are in 1969. And as it was necessary to earn a living, the young Mohamed proposed some caricatures to the daily Opinion. 
Seduced by the stroke of the pencil as daring as it is intelligent, the leaders of the organ of Istiqlal were quickly going to hire him. 
And there you have it, Mohamed, bombarded caricaturist designer, who is quickly noticed by increasingly daring boards. He still remembers his first clearly committed caricature: the drawing represented a man and his little boy looking up at a figure floating in the air, a towel in his hand. The latter strangely resembled the Minister of Finance at the time. In the bubbles, the child said to his father “Look at daddy, he is flying”. “But what is he stealing? replied the father. “It happened without censorship getting involved,” recalls Mohamed Filali. 
Meeting with censorship 
A good reason to be bold and dare to draw more and more incisive designs. “The authorities were always quick to censor the writings. But it was more complicated when it came to drawings. They were, after all, “mikiates!” This will last until the day he commits an openly anti-American box, criticizing the United States' commitment to Viet Nam; then another attacking the Algerian government. It was enough for us to be more interested in his case. Mohamed Filali escapes a kidnapping attempt, and the "accidental" exposure of his car will cause him some burns, but will cost his life to the person who accompanied him.
