Ismael: The Last Guardian of an Ancient Library
Over 500 years ago, driven out by the Spanish Inquisition, Ismael Diadié's ancestors left Al-Andalus for Timbuktu. In 2012, Ansar al Din salafist fighters and their al Qaeda allies threatened to destroy the 500-year-old ancient Islamic library belonging to Diadié and his ancestors, which they had hoped to preserve at all costs. Desperate to save the manuscripts, Diadié returns to Granada.
