Scopitones

Catalog of Arab, Kabyl and Berber Scopitones

In the late sixties and early seventies, Productions Davis Boyer produced many Arab, Kabyl and Berber Scopitone films for the North African immigrant community in France. Although the Davis Boyer archives provides confirmation for many of the titles listed here, the list nonetheless appears to be incomplete. For more information, see this review (in French) of Trésors de Scopitones Arabes, Kabyles et Berberes, a wonderful French TV documentary directed by Michèle Collery and Anaïs Prosaic. Thanks to Robert for English translations of some of the Arabic titles below.
