Robert De Niro, the famous American actor, landed on the red carpet of the International Film Festival in Marrakesh, shaking hands with the audience of the film date and taking pictures with them.
De Niro said he was delighted to receive a tribute from a friend of him, Scorsese, thanking the actors who said earlier on the same rug that they chose acting because of their cinematic roles.
De Niro is reunited with Martin Scorsese, the famous American director, on the Red Carpet Marrakesh after appearing in many of his latest films, such as Casino, Good Villas and Rageen Ball.
Martin Scorsese spoke of his delight at the return of the Marrakesh Festival. He described his relationship with Robert De Niro as “like his relationship with the family, because they are adults at the age of 15 in the same neighborhood, and they see the importance of the stories themselves”.
The second day of the International Film Festival of Marrakesh is destinated to honor Robert De Niro in the Palais des Congrès after the festival opened its 17th session on Friday.
Today’s festival carpet features international actors such as American actor Laurence Fishburne, Guillermo del Toro, director of The Shape of Water, and European, Moroccan and Arab directors and actors.
