Our next film: Timbuktu

Our next film, on Tuesday 4 April at 19:45, is Abderrahmane Sissako’s Timbuktu. In Mali, not far from the ancient city of Timbuktu, cattle herder Kidane and his family live peacefully while the nearby townspeople have fallen under the brutal regime of Jihadists. For a time, Kidane escapes their puritanical zeal, but soon everything changes. A powerful fable about tolerance and its opposite, beautifully shot in the deserts of Mauritania.
