Overview

Nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Feature, Abderrahmane Sissako creates a beautiful film that explores the ways in which religion can be twisted into something perverse and destructive, as well as how it can be beautiful. Timbuktu is a graceful yet powerful rallying cry against extremism.
