AMINE KOUIDER: From Algiers to Fairfield
Amine grew up in Algiers, Algeria. His first album is “Chbach,” a lively and eclectic mix of music.
An award-winning filmmaker and founding member of David Lynch Foundation Television, Amine has worked as the producer, director, director of photography, and editor on projects around the world, including subjects such as high-security prisons, street children in Colombia, homeless men in New York City, refugees in Uganda, teenage prostitutes in Los Angeles, Buddhist nuns in Thailand, and Pandits in India. Film projects include the feature-length documentary M’ma Hasna – la Rockeuse du Desert, and a surrealist narrative short film, The Land of Nothing.
“What I want to do in the future, no matter where I am or what I am doing, is to be happy, and radiate that, and hopefully bring consciousness to people,” says Amine.
