Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his family and their twelve-year-old shepherd. Back in the city, the people suffer from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. Winner of 7 César awards, Timbuktu confirms Sissako’s status as one of the true humanists of contemporary cinema.
