Presented by Le Guess Who? & Springhaver
In this 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. Narrated throughout with improvised instrumental guitar from protagonist Ahmoudou Madassane, written, directed and developed with a local Tuareg cast and Sahel Sounds’ Christopher Kirkley, Zerzura mixes folktales with documentary, to explore Saharan dreams and imagination.
Please note that you’ll need a free ticket to enter the film screenings at Springhaver because of limited capacity. You can get your ticket at the box office of Springhaver, during opening hours or at least 30 minutes prior to the screening (until sold out).
