they-will-have-to-kill-us-first-songhoy-blues Music, one of the most important forms of communication in Mali, disappeared overnight in 2012 when Islamic extremists groups rose up to capture an area the size of the UK and France combined. But rather than lay down their instruments, Mali’s musicians fought back.

This sometimes harrowing documentary charts the aftermath of a ban on music-making in parts of the country.

We’re privileged to have an Q&A after the screening with the documentaries director Johanna Schwartz .

Johanna Schwartz’s miraculously hopeful documentary delivers a vibrant testimony of resilience under oppression. Full review
