There are not too many other music documentaries so focused on the music & yet so beautifully situated in context (sociopolitical, ethno-musicological, personal). Amidst the music of social protest, all the security guards; amidst the expression of popular yearning, the need to hire a copyright lawyer. In the dialectic between profession & self-expression, between change & tradition, the music finds itself & us
Ho avuto poco tempo per vedere terminare il film ma dai primi 10 minuti sono rimasto estasiato. Amo la musica africana e maghrebina in particolare la trovo trascinante e appassionante. Consiglio la visione a tutti quelli che come me amano il cinema e la musica.
An excellent restoration. Watched this on my big screen LCD last night using my Playstation 3 hooked up to an A/V receiver and the image was very film-like. By the way, this is an excellent way to watch movies on Auteurs, instead of using laptops or PCs. Kudos to World Cinema Foundation. Rezaul Hasan
