Middle of the Moment
This poetic film by Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel explores the rhythms and structures of nomadic life, intercutting the journeys of two Tuareg groups with that of a European circus troupe Cirque O, highlighting existing parallels and yet allowing differences to come to light. Set against a soundtrack composed by noted musician Fred Frith, the film examines nomadic
existence as an experience of total freedom and living in the moment. (1995, 80 minutes, black & white).
