Timbuktu Review

Image for Timbuktu

An ordinary, peaceful family living in the dunes of Timbuktu find their lives disturbed by Jihadists in the area.

★★★★

The tranquillity of a law-abiding Muslim family is shattered by gun-toting jihadists in this harrowing reflection on the occupation of northern Mali in 2012. Exceptional human filmmaking.

Exceptional, human filmmaking.
