They Will Have To Kill Us First

This hit documentary from last year's SXSW festival relates an ultimately uplifting story about the power of music over violence and censorship. Once upon a time Timbuktu was one of the greatest musical centers in Africa. That was until 2012 when Islamic jihadists invaded and banned music, destroyed radio stations and killed musicians. The musicians chose to fight back using their music as a weapon. Director Johanna Schwartz follows several groups of exiled musicians working to bring music back to Timbuktu. In English, Songhai, Bambara, French and Tamashek with English subtitles. 105 minutes Unrated.
