Abderrahmane Sissako set out to explore what happens when a group of ‘jihadists’ take over a city and try to impose a strict Islamic regime. We see the impact on the townspeople and the Bedouin in the desert outside. The result is surprising, turning this into one of the most discussed films of the year.
