SA Premiere

This acclaimed film (nominated for a Palme d’Or & Oscar) cemented Sissako as a master filmmaker. Inspired in part by true events, Timbuktu thoughtfully examines the effects of the arrival of Islamic fundamentalism on the inhabitants of the film’s legendary namesake city from cow herders to musicians. Controversially, it depicts Jihadists as three-dimensional characters. Listed in 100 Best Films of 21st Century by numerous critics.
