A revolutionary story of guitars, motorcycles, cell phones – and the music of a new generation. This West African re-imagining of Prince's Purple Rain is set in the Saharan city of Agadez in Niger. Riffing on Purple Rain’s universal heartbeat, Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai (Akounak for short) is a visually sumptuous and musically thrilling movie that works splendidly with or without the Purple Rain mythos. Curated by Afronaut(a) in collaboration with Iyapo Repository.
