About EL GUSTO:
In 2003, film director Safinez Bousbia stumbled upon the inspirational story of El Gusto, a group of Jewish and Muslim artists separated by war in Algeria more than 50 years ago, but brought together by a shared passion for Chaâbi – a musical blend of Berber, Andalusian, and Flamenco-influenced sounds meaning “of the people.” Called “The Buena Vista Social Club of Algiers,” the 20-piece El Gusto orchestra stars in Bousbia’s documentary, chronicling the transcendent power of music.

 About the Boston Muslim Film Festival The American Islamic Congress is hosting its 8th Annual Boston Muslim Film Festival from March 25th to April 11th. Our festival provides a fresh perspective into the complexity of the Muslim Community. Open dialogue on unspoken issues and tackling stereotypes surrounding the Muslim Identity is the aim for the series of films AIC has selected this year. The movies will address social issues such as American Muslim Identity, sexual harassment, Interfaith collaborations, revolutions, genocide, generation gaps, censorship, and many more—visually complementing the striking theme of this year’s film festival—“Contrast in Depth.”

    In case you're interested, there is a website called Eventbrite that is offering free passes for the movie You could make a donation if you prefer. I got my tickets a couple of weeks ago. Would I need to get another ticket for the concert after the screening?

    Hi guys! I was not aware of the Eventbrite freepasses. In any case the $10 includes everythings..They even will serve a food buffet (Algerian food) after the live performance so it's definitely a great deal :).
    I know the tickets will be on sale at the door and that's the easiest thing to do. They are very relax, friendly and super nice (great organisation!) I don't think that they would turn anyone away even if it's end up being full they will accommodate you. That said it's always a good idea to come on the early side it is a small room...

      Thanks Jacques! I did the $10 donation/fee, just to be sure and I don't mind helping out a nonprofit. Algerian Food sounds good. Looking forward to seeing the movie, you, and others in Atlas Soul.

    I was initially interested because Atlas Soul is playing but after I read the description of the movie, it looks so interesting, I want to see the movie and the music.
