Meeting with Abderrahmane Sissako

March 11th, Q & A with Mauritanian filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako at the Institut français in Beijing.

Mauritanian filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako is known around the world for his poignant films depicting the drama of exile. With Timbuktu, he became the first African filmmaker to win a Best Director César award. Abderrahmane Sissako will be touring China to present the film in Beijing (from 8th to 12th March 2016), Guangzhou (from 14th to 16th March 2016) and Shanghai (17th to 20th March 2016).

Synopsis

Not far from Timbuktu, which has fallen under the control of religious extremists, Kidane leads a simple, peaceful life among the sand dunes, surrounded by his wife, Satima, his daughter, Toya, and Issan, a twelve-year-old shepherd. Powerless, the inhabitants of the city submit to the Jihadists’ regime of terror. Gone are music and laughter, cigarettes and even football… Kidane and his family seem separated from the chaos of Timbuktu. But their world is turned upside down one day when Kidane accidentally kills Amadou the fisherman. Now, he must face up to the occupiers’ new laws…

Nominated for an Oscar in 2015, Timbuktu took seven César awards, and The Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 2014 Cannes Festival.
