The Alliance Française of Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Goethe Zentrum, the French Embassy in India & ARTE, is presenting The World Through ARTE's Eyes, a documentary film festival, from 14th to 16th December, at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre. A total of 8 short films will be screened during the 3-day festival.

The World Through Arte's Eyes presents documentaries on a host of different places such as Mali, China, North Korea, USA, Haiti, Afghanistan, Iran, India, Germany and France. The effects of globalisation on people from vastly different backgrounds and their working conditions will be addressed, along with migration in Europe, stories from South Asian countries, world music and cinema.

Today, the first day, a 55-minute French film, A Visit To Ali Farka Toure by Marc Huraux, will be the second (and final) film to be screened. Niafunké, situated in northern Mali on the bend of the Niger between the sands and the river, is the kingdom of Ali Farka Touré. Interspersed with the interviews and extracts from the concerts of a musician known in the West as "The Bluesman of the Desert", the film reveals Ali Farka Touré's lifestyle and his gift of music.

ARTE was created in 1992 as a joint Franco-German venture, and set itself the goal of producing high-quality programs on art and culture. As cultural exchange is given top priority and is consciously promoted by ARTE, the focus is on the cooperation between ARTE and public broadcasting stations across Europe. The programs are scheduled to be broadcast in several languages and viewed throughout Europe.
