exclusive open air screening
This year the Peace Palace will screen again, in cooperation with Movies that Matter, a film about Peace and Justice during Just Peace Festival. This year’s audience favorite Timbuktu will be shown in the beautiful garden of the Palace. After the screening the Malian musician Zoumana Diarra will give a concert.
Kidane and his family live peacefully in the dunes outside of Timbuktu. The city is in the hands of religious fundamentalists. Playing music, laughing, smoking and even football are forbidden. Every day, the improvised tribunal renders absurd and tragic judgments. The fate of Kidane and his family changes when Kidane accidentally kills fisherman Amadou. Kidane is now in the hands of the jihadists with their new laws.
Spoken language: French, Arabic, Bambara, English. Subtitles: English.
