This French-Mauritanian film directed by Abderrahmane Sissako follows the story of a cattle herder and his family who reside in the dunes of Timbuktu. The family finds their quiet lives - which are typically free of the Jihadists determined to control their faith - abruptly disturbed.

The film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2015 Academy Awards.
