A humanist visual poem
With unprecedented access, Touba chronicles the annual Grand Magaal pilgrimage of one million Sufi Muslims to the holy Senegalese city of Touba. The vivid cinematography and integrated soundtrack elevate the film to a humanist poem that brings viewers inside the Mouride Brotherhood – one of West Africa's most elusive organizations and one of the world's largest Sufi communities.
