Agadez Virtual Screening
A documentary film following Tuareg musician Bombino and his rise to fame.
Agadez was filmed in tandem with the recording of Bombino’s first album of the same name beginning in 2010 in Agadez, Niger. The film started as a documentary about the Tuareg nomads of the Sahara Desert who for centuries connected North and West Africa with their camel caravans. After filming with Bombino (also a Tuareg) for a month, the film largely became about him, his culture, and his music. His music became an inspiration to a new generation of Tuareg adapting to a modern world. TheView more
