Akounak Teggdalit Taha Tazoughai
Dir. Christopher Kirkley, 75 mins, USA/Niger, 2015
The electric Purple Rain homage you didn’t know you wanted, Akounak Teggdalit Taha Tazoughai (Rain the Color of Red with a Little Blue In It) stars Tuareg musician Mdou Moctar (performing at Sled Island 2015) as a young musician from Agadez, Niger, who struggles with family, romance and art while riding around the desert on his purple motorcycle. Vibrant music and cinematography make this one of the most memorable films you’ll see all year.
