The Unerhört International Filmfestival Hamburg has awarded our cinema documentary MALI BLUES (Director: Lutz Gregor) as “Best Film”! The film was the opening film of the festival.
Following Fatoumata Diawara, shooting star of the global pop scene, MALI BLUES is a musical journey, discovering the country’s rich musical culture and it’s threat by radical Islamists. On our way we meet other committed musicians, who are fighting for unity and the freedom to express themselves through their music, like world famous Ngoni player and traditional Griot Bassekou Kouyaté, street rapper Master Soumy and Tuareg band leader Ahmed Ag Kaedi.
German cinema release is on Sept 29.
