Come and join us for a French classic as part of the UCL International Festival hosted by your Film Society! 

“Passionate, humanistic and enormously powerful, Mauritanian director Abderrahmane Sissako’s Timbuktu was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards and screened in competition for the “Palme d Or” at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Based on the forceful takeover of Mail in 2012, Timbuktu is a searing and extraordinary fable about the dangers of religious extremism that positions Sissako at the forefront of African cinema.”

This classic is not one to miss out on!
