THEY’LL HAVE TO KILL US FIRST: MALIAN MUSIC IN EXILE (CERT. 15) followed by a discussion led by Carol Leeming.
Music is the beating heart of Malian culture. But when Islamic hardliners took control of northern Mali in 2012, they enforced one of the harshest interpretations of sharia law in history and, crucially for Mali, they banned all forms of music. With a specially commissioned soundtrack from Mali’s most exciting artists, a score written by the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner, They Will Have to Kill Us First leaps headfirst into a tale of courage in the face of conﬂict.
