Silo World Cinema: Timbuktu

  • Silo Park Corner of Jellicoe and Beaumont Street Wynyard Quarter, Auckland New Zealand (map)

 Wrap the working week at Silo Park from 5pm, with a bite to eat and a drink from the Silo Park Bar. Step up to the plate with Silo Park Slugger and peruse the Silo Night Markets. At 9pm it's another World Cinema edition, curated by the African Film Festival New Zealand, featuring Timbuktu. 

Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, proud cattle herder Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed aka Pino) lives peacefully in the dunes with his family. They are spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu, until their destiny changes abruptly in this stunningly rendered film from a master of world cinema.

M - Violence & content that may disturb.
