30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Remaking Purple Rain (1984) in the Sahara, Akounak tells the story of a young guitarist in the North of Niger, trying to make it against all odds. The first ever Tuareg language fiction film.
Gorgeous Cinema - everything here is beautiful: The music, the colors and the people. One of the best African films of the 21st century (so far).
Very plain storyline.
Great music though. And good job filming a place almost unknown to the big screen.
2.5 Killer soundtrack
