A Little for My Heart and a Little for My God

Loading...
Since in Algeria most women traditionally are not allowed to mix with men, female orchestras customarily entertain gatherings of women.

Only a woman filmmaker could have penetrated this closed environment and captured on film sucha spontaneou [...]
