The Last Song before the War at Old Butter Factory Feb 18th

Sunday, February 18th will be the next monthly community documentary screening in the Old Cobargo Butter Factory at 3.30pm The Last Song before the War A Film by Kiley Kraskouskas

The Last Song Before the War is a touching tribute to the legendary Festival au Désert music festival that took place in Northern Mali from 2001 to 2012. Masterfully interspersing footage of stunning musical performances from a variety of North African and international artists (Tinarawen, Oumou Sangaré), panoramic shots displaying the quiet beauty of the Sahara Desert, stirring images of legions of Tuareg nomads arriving by camel, and interviews with musicians, fans, and the event’s founder, the documentary captures both the joy and the mounting tension of the festival‘s final year before it was forced into exile when Islamic militants seized control of the region in 2012. The documentary chronicles the 2011 Festival - arguably the last edition that still captured its original goals - a global display of peace, reconciliation, and the healing power of music.The producers have crafted a film equally appealing to world music aficionados, international wanderers, armchair travellers and global politics junkies alike.
