Aboudigin Films is dedicated to the spread of filmmaking in cities and regions of emerging talent. We pursue stories that deeply engage the particularities of place and time, and intentionally eschew "global" and nationalistic discourses.
We began in the early 2000's as a collective of theater actors in the windswept town of Ati, Chad, on the Sahara desert's southern edge. We picked up a camcorder and suddenly had access to a new form of storytelling. Rainy season rains hit the dried Batha riverbed and as the river grew, so did the energy of a community driven by the power of the moving image to tell its stories, our stories.
