The world premiere of Zerzura - the surreal Tuareg folktale about the search for a mythical oasis in the Sahara. Mixing folktales and documentary, the film follows a young man from Niger who leaves home in search of an enchanted oasis. His journey leads him into a surreal vision of the Sahara, crossing paths with djinn, bandits, gold seekers and migrants. A folktale transposed onto an acid western, the film is a collaborative fiction, shot in Niger.
