Graduated from the Louis-Lumière film school and the Sorbonne with a postgraduate degree in Cinema under the direction of Jean Rouch, Laraki is a key player in the new Morocco cinema wave in the 90's, promoting  the questioning of human rights and social issues though his works. He freely uses cinema and television alike, to take a look at his society transformation, MONA SABER (Marrakech 1st award-winning Moroccan feature film) deals with political prisoners, PARFUM DE MER is about the power of money, LOVE IN THE MEDINA (Prize Youssef Chahine Best Arabic Film) questions the individual freedom and is at the centre of the debates on the «Art Propre» during the Arab Spring.  In his TV series and fictions that are hits n°1 in Morocco, he raises awareness about women rights, children exploitation, inheritance inequal laws (MA9TOU3 MEN CHAJRA/WITHOUT FAMILY), cyberbullying (TOILE D'ARAIGNEE), autism and inclusive school(ALI YA
ALI), Organ donation (QALB KARIM/GENEROUS HEART)...  Laraki considers cinema and art in general as a lever of resistance against arbitrariness and obscurantism.
