ANOTHER TREASURE FILM FROM HISHAM MAYET

Above: Sublime Frequencies announces a new film by Hisham Mayet: The Divine River: Ceremonial Pageantry in the Sahel. Condensed from 40 hours of footage shot between 2007 and 2012, The Divine River is an exhilarating, hallucinatory, harrowing record of music, ritual, life, and landscape along the Niger River — which the Tuareg call “Egerew n-Igerewen,” or “River of Rivers” — as it winds through Mali and the Republic of Niger.

  1. This looks great. The guys with the yellow paint …I believe they are the Woodabe, have had me mesmerized since seeing a video of them during their “Gerewol” ceremony at the Brooklyn museum…I’ve never stopped thinking about it. Sublime Frequncies is of course amazing. Thinking about ordering the DVD..the website kinda freaks me out …I guess they’re going for a 1995 vibe
