Amanar Tamasheq, 2010
- The extremes of observational cinema are explored in Amanar Tamasheq a film that offers absolutely no distraction from the desert grounds where they were shot. Amanar Tamasheq focuses on the encounter between the filmmaker and the Tuareg rebels. He is asked to record their history, even if he does not understand what he is documenting. Which is a strong statement for the concept of cinema as an art that has an expressive intelligence of its own.
Senses of Cinema, Dana Linssen
- Amanar Tamasheq parts from the exciting adventure of the director on a trip with the Tuaregs rebels in the desert of Mali, to convert the camera into the most powerful weapon. The terrible history of this people, always under threat, is built through their own words in a text that, from their own statements reworked, overlaps in the form of subtitles to images. These, far in the highest degree of language that normally tells the violent, they gain political power and radical rarely seen. "
