WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Based on the novel Life and Teaching of Tierno Bokar - The Sage of Bandigara by African writer Amadou Hampaté Bâ and adapted by Marie Hélène Estienne and Peter Brook, 11 and 12 explores how a theological conflict over whether a certain prayer should be recited eleven or twelve times leads to hatred, violence, and massacres. Set in West Africa under French occupation, this true story is directed by Peter Brook.
