A Master Musicians of Joujuka documentary from 1973?
From briongysin.com (where I discovered it):
'In June 1972 two young Americans arrived in Tangier in order to make a film about the legendary Master Musicians of Joujouka. Having made contact with Mohamed Hamri and later Brion Gysin. The next day  they set off for Joujouka with Hamri. They they  spent three weeks filming and recording in the village. Since July 2011 the original director and  producer John Anthony and  Master Musicians of Joujuka manager Frank Rynne have been carefully cleaning and restoring  the film. The film was shown only twice in  1973 on Danish TV and  has remained unseen since then. Music recorded for the project by Arnold Stahl was released as a 2 LP set Tribe Ahl Serif in 1975 and is regarded as the best recordings of The Master Musicians of Joujouka/Jajouka from that period.
In 2012 the film and  the music will be released together for the first time and the film will be available at film festivals.’
