(2014) dir Abderrahmane Sissako w/Ibrahim Ahmed, Abel Jafri, Toulou Kiki [97 min; tbd]
Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, Kidane and his small family live peacefully in the dunes. In town, however, the people suffer from a regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Kidane and his family have been spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu but their destiny changes when Kidane accidentally kills a man and he must face his country’s new laws.

“An unflinching, quietly furious exploration of life under radical Islamist rule.” – A. O. Scott, The New York Times

“Sissako’s gorgeous fourth feature reflects upon the role religion currently plays in Africa, and the foundational clash of cultures that shaped the continent.” – Violet Lucca, Village Voice
