Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya, and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the inhabitants suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. Women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family seem to be spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu. But their destiny changes when Kidane accidentally kills Amadou, the fisherman who slaughtered “GPS,” his beloved cow. He now has to face the new laws of the foreign occupants.

  1. @Timbuktu; stunning and deeply emotional movie, depicting life under Jihad rule of the city 2012-13. I highly recommend it. 

  2. This movie needs to be made more available in the US! Sadly western media failed to adequately cover the events that took place in northern Mali in 2012, when this should be a top concern for the entire world.
