Treasures of the Scopitones

Codirector Michèle Collery in Person

Part of Album: Cinematheque Tangier, a project by Yto Barrada

In the documentary Treasures of the Scopitones (Trésors de Scopitones), North African performers and their families and friends reunite in a French café to watch the Scopitone videos they made in the late 1960s when they were struggling new immigrants in France. Made for French television, the film rekindled interest in this lost music form and the Scopitone jukebox. See one in the exhibition Album: Cinematheque Tangier.

Directed by Michéle Collery and Anaïs Prosaic (1999, France, in French and Arabic with English subtitles, 54 minutes).
