From director Chai Vasarhelyi (Youssou N'Dour : I Bring What I Love), Touba reveals a different face of Islam, one which is so essential to these divisive times. With unprecedented access, the film chronicles the annual Grand Magaal pilgrimage of one million Sufi Muslims to the holy Senegalese city of Touba. Shot on celluloid film, its breath-takingly vivid cinematography by Scott Duncan and integrated soundtrack elevates it to the level of a humanist film poem.
