The Sahara desert is also called 'the great void'. And in the middle of the desert's nothingness, the charismatic Malika is running a café, where tired travellers can have a cup of tea, an omelette or a chat. Unmarried and alone with her cat Mimi – and yet. There are plenty of guests in Malika's house. Lonely lorry drivers, motorcyclists and entire groups of young men who start both singing and dancing. There is in fact life in the desert, and this life is captured by Ferhan Hasseni with humour and an artist's attention to detail. But when night falls and the Arab electronic music pulsates into the night, the winds of both change and madness start blowing. Hassen Ferhani's multi-award-winning festival darling is produced by the CPH:DOX winner Narimane Mari ('Bloody Beans', 2013).
