Set in the early days of the jihadist takeover of northern Mali in 2012, director Abderrahmane Sissako’s compelling drama delivers a beautiful and deeply humane condemnation of religious intolerance.

When the multicultural city of Timbuktu is invaded by militant Islamic rebels, they ban music, soccer and virtually any form of pleasure, and insist that all women must cover their bodies. The local imam calmly argues against their narrow, ultra-orthodox dogma, but he has little influence over the rag-tag bunch of religious intruders. Beautifully filmed and directed with remarkable control and restraint, Timbuktu confirms Sissako’s status as one the true humanists of contemporary cinema.
