Director Christopher Kirby – 2015 Niger 75 min – IndieFest 2016 program note:

 

Prince goes Sahel in this remake of Purple Rain in the Saharan Desert.  The first feature film in the Tamashek language (which has no word for “purple,” hence the title), the film tells the universal story of a musician trying to make it against all odds. With a purple robe and matching chopper, a smoking hot guitarist arrives in a music-mad Niger town and sets about wooing a local beauty, clashing with his pious father and fencing with the jealous king of the local scene until their climactic six-string shootout. –Chris Metzler, SF IndieFest
