This feature-length documentary follows musicians in Mali in the wake of a jihadist takeover and subsequent banning of music in 2012. Rather than lay down their instruments, Mali’s musicians fought back. Declared “Essential viewing” (Dazed & Confused), and “a gripping, powerful documentary” (Indiewire), this film raises questions about the importance of cultural heritage and human rights. The film complements the ArtsLIVE concert by the Mali-based ensemble Trio Da Kali on November 2.
