Cuddle Kino // Timbuktu (Abderrahmane Sissako, 2014)
Noize Fabrik is getting ready for winter and introducing a new edition of our regular Monday movie nights: Cuddle Kino!
Every Monday we’re going to be screening a selection of movies/shortfilms curated by our Communication Manager (and film enthusiast) Clément in our cozy space (where smoking is allowed), complete with the comfiest couches and popcorn 🙂
Join us for the screening of “Timbuktu” (2014, Abderrahmane Sissako) in O.V.
Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, proud cattle herder Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed aka Pino) lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima (Toulou Kiki), his daughter Toya (Layla Walet Mohamed), and Issan (Mehdi Ag Mohamed), 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 abruptly.
It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards and has been nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language at the 69th British Academy Film Awards. It won Best Film at the 11th Africa Movie Academy Awards.
The film was named the twelfth “Best Film of the 21st Century So Far” in 2017 by The New York Times.
