LOGLINE


The band Tamikrest reflects in their songs the desires of the young Tuareg, they play the “blues of the desert” on numerous concerts in Europe and in their home country at campfires, in the south of Algeria, directly on the borderline to Mali. Here they fight for their own territory, “Azawad”. But it is war, Islamists seize the power, some of the younger Tuareg declare themselves being part of the Al-Qaeda, the region develops into a zone of terror and interests of multinational businesses. The band-members prefer music rather than weapons to reflect the desires of the young tuareg generation – half of the film was filmed by the Tuareg themselves, images of a stolen peace, on the barest ground on earth.
