Item ID: 480786

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. Comes with 12-page booklet. In Tamashek with English and French subtitles; 84 minutes, all region DVD, NTSC format. Limited edition of 1000 copies.
