This should be good



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.

Starring guitarist Mdou Moctar, Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai (English: "Rain the Color of Blue with a little Red in it") is a feature length fiction film, shot entirely in Agadez, Niger with a local cast and crew. Akounak tells the universal story of a musician trying to make it "against all odds," set against the backdrop of the raucous subculture of Tuareg guitar. The protagonist, real life musician Mdou Moctar, must battle fierce competition from jealous musicians, overcome family conflicts, and endure the trials of love - all while coming to terms with one of the biggest barriers: himself.

Purple sort of rolls off the tongue better than "blue with a little red in it".

Somehow I think this might not make it to the states on DVD though.  Darn.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
