Meanwhile in Amsterdam >
OCCII ON TOUR – Rebel Up & Filmhuis Cavia present:
FILM: ZERZURA + REBEL UP! DJ’s, SL’OCCii & Papelón Kifesh

In Tamashek with English subtitles; 84 minutes, 2017, Sahel Sounds.
Directed by Christopher Kirkley with Rhissa Koutata & Ahmoudou Madassane.

The first-ever ethnographic acid Western! In a genre-defying film, Zerzura follows a young man from a small village in Niger who leaves home in search of an enchanted oasis. His journey leads him into a surreal vision of the Sahara, crossing paths with djinn, bandits, gold seekers, and migrants. Zerzura is a modern folktale transposed onto an acid Western, equal parts Jodorowsky and Jean Rouch. Written and developed with a local Tuareg cast, Zerzura mixes ethnofiction with the genre picture, exploring themes of migration and exoticism through a collaborative approach.
