Timbuktu / Abderrahmane Sissako


A dazzling, heartbreaking masterpiece, Timbuktu was nominated for an Oscar and has won multiple prizes around the world. It’s the story the many effects of the regime of terror a group of dogmatic fundamentalists impose a on a devout, peace-loving community. “In providing audiences a chance to bear witness to unspeakable suffering as well as dazzling defiance and human dignity, Sissako has created a film that’s a privilege to watch,” says the Washington Post.
