Mauritania's first-ever official entry for Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award consideration looks at the brief occupation of Timbuktu by militant religious fundamentalists. Not far from Timbuktu, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being 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. Directed and co-written by Abderrahmane Sissako. Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. (Fully subtitled)
