The Alchemist is a philosophical story written in 1988 that tells the story of a young Andalusian shepherd named Santiago who goes in search of treasure buried at the foot of the pyramids. When he meets the alchemist in the desert, he teaches him to listen to his heart and invites him to follow his dreams to the end. The deal, won by the Moroccan Cinematographers’ Center, is a new opportunity for Moroccan cinema to open new frontiers.
