Film Screening: "Timbuktu"

This is an Archive of a Past Event

This is the fifth of eight films in the annual SGS Summer Film Festival running from June 17th to August 26th.  This year's festival features films from around the world that focus on the topic of “Imagining Empire: A Global Retrospective” and offers a flexible lens with which to look at both historical and contemporary geopolitical and socioeconomic contexts.

Film synopsis: A cattle herder and his family who reside in the dunes of Timbuktu find their quiet lives - which are typically free of the Jihadists determined to control their faith - abruptly disturbed.

After the film, there will be a discussion moderated by Laura Hubbard, Associate Director of the Center for African Studies.
