***The first ever Tuareg language fictional film, based on the legendary rock-u-drama Purple Rain (1984), Akounak explores the world of a musician trying to succeed in the raucous subculture of the Niger guitar scene. The protagonist, real life musician MDOU MOCTAR, must battle fierce competition from jealous musicians, overcome family conflicts, endure the trials of love, and overcome his biggest rival—himself. Carried by stunning musical performances from Mdou, the film is a window into modern day Tuareg guitar and an experiment in participatory ethnographic filmmaking. In Tamashek, with English and French subtitles; 75 minutes, all region DVD, NTSC format. Limited edition of 1.000 copies. Directed by CHRISTOPHER KIRKLEY.
