1001 Voices| 1hr : 30mins
Director: Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud | Producer: Artline Films
Focus Years: 2001 | Country: France
The Tunisian director Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud takes us to the heart of the mystical universe of Sufism, where Islam has developed its most sophisticated musical expression. This film will allow you to discover the great musical diversity of Islam, from the many different styles of Egypt to that of Senegal and India, or Tunisia and Turkey. Marked by the great celebrations of the Muslim calendar, the film will leave an important testimony to the apprenticeship and performance of this great musical heritage. Today, in a number of Muslim countries, music is also a way of fighting against religious fundamentalism. The political and social reality of these art forms will therefore be a major theme of the film.
