Red Film Club

Timbuktu


The people of Timbuktu in Mali struggle against an oppressive regime of terror inflicted by invading Jihadis. "Gracefully assembled and ultimately disquieting, Timbuktu is a timely film with a powerful message." (2014, cert. 12)


The film lasts 96 minutes; multi-language film with English subtitles.

Admission is free; donations welcome. Members only, but you can join at the door.

The bar will open at 7 pm, and the film starts at 7.30.
