BAB’ AZIZ (Le prince qui contemplait son âme)

Following the tradition of „A Thousand and One Nights“, the film contains several stories – of princes, palaces and frustrated quests – in a magical tale about a dervish and his grand-daughter’s travels in the Sahara. BAB’AZIZ is a dazzling portrait of the desert and its legends, rarely shown in such eloquent manner in a feature film.
