2ND ANNUAL LOS ANGELES AMAZIGH FILM FESTIVAL

Synopsis:

Saturday, January 10th


2ND ANNUAL LOS ANGELES AMAZIGH FILM FESTIVAL

We hope the 2009 festival will please you: we have selected two superb documentaries and a very special full-length film for your viewing. In addition, we have added an Art Exhibit featuring two exceptional Amazigh artists from Morocco, Hassan Moumene (Atlas) and Abdallah Aourik (Souss), and a longer concluding Concert. We also have special guests from Morocco, and a musical group led by known artist KHALID AYOUR from the Souss.

The goal of the Los Angeles Amazigh Film Festival is to introduce you to the Amazigh world of Berbers and Tuaregs of the vast North African territory called "Tamazgha" which extends from the Oasis of Siwa in Egypt, through Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, the Canary Islands, the Sahara desert to the north of Niger and Mali, and Burkina-Faso. This year, our celebration focuses more on Morocco, while last year emphasized Algeria, and next year will showcase the Tuareg people.
