El Gusto

Film Showing and Discussion with the Musician Momo Djender as Part of the Film and Reading Series "Between Marrakesh and Mashhad"

Documentary, Algeria, France, Ireland, 2012, 88 min, French/Arabic original soundtrack with English subtitles

An exceptional band revival, a homage to tolerance and hope, and a declaration of love to the traditional Algerian Chaâbi music – in "El Gusto," the filmmaker Safinez Bousbia, who was born in Algiers and raised in Switzerland, tells of Jewish and Muslim musicians, who were separated by the history of Algeria 50 years ago. Intrigued by an old photo of the band, Bousbia goes in search of the now 70- to 100-year-olds and reunites them for a concert together.
