AKOUNAK TEDALAT TAHA TAZOUGHAI (Rain the Color of Blue with a Little Red in It)
Directed by Christopher Kirkley, 2015, 1h15, Niger
Music by Mdou Moctar

Mdou Moctar is a musician trying to succeed in the raucous subculture of the Niger guitar scene. He must battle fierce competition from jealous musicians, overcome family conflicts, endure trials of the heart, and overcome his biggest rival - himself. The first ever Tuareg-language fictional film based on the legendary rock-u-drama “Purple Rain,” with stunning musical performances from real-life musician Mdou Moctar.

Presented in partnership with the African Film Festival.
