The traditional practice of trance has captivated French filmmaker Rahma Benhamou El Madani ever since she was a small girl watching her mother meditate and enter a state of self-induced hypnosis to 'Gnawa' music. Years later, she discovers the band Gnawa Diffusion which plays a blend of 'Gnawa' music, fused with Western and Arabic elements. Motivated by her discovery, El Madani sets out on an odyssey to Morocco, Algeria and Mali to discover the roots of this fascinating ancient and haunting sound.

France/Algeria/ Morocco, 2010, 80mins, Arabic, Doc. in French with English subtitles, Rahma Benhamou El Madani, dir.
