ANIMATION FILMS IN NIGER

Fotograma de Agaissa

Al Tarab promotes the reciprocity of exchange of knowledge between professionals in both the African and European film industries. Currently, we are in the planning phase of a cultural cooperation project in which filmmaker Coke Riobóo, specialized in stop-motion animation technique, will travel to Niger for the purpose of swapping knowledge with the father of animation cinema in Africa, Moustapha Alassane, as regards the application of new technologies to animation. More specifically, they will discuss the possibilities of stop-motion technique at the school directed by Alassane in Niger. Al Tarab hopes to be able to count on the funding of the Spanish Embassy in Niger and put this project into action in 2012.
