Video: Al Jazeera – Abderrahmane Sissako: ‘The Islam of Timbuktu was taken hostage’

Al Jazeera has this interview with Abderrahmane Sissako, a Mauritanian film maker, about his 2015 film ‘Timbuktu’. In the interview they discuss terrorism, narratives and how Islam is portrayed, especially in relation to events in Mali and the Sahel region. Food for thought for those who have work focusing on regions were Islamist groups are active.
