Abstract:Between the 12th and 15th century, in Muslim Spain, many science books were written. When the Muslims left Spain, many took their manuscripts with them. Today,they are dispersed in numerous libraries along the caravan route, through Morocco, Mauritania and Mali. From Toledo to Timbuktu, this documentary follows their traces. Its protagonist, Ismael Diadié Haidara Kati, owner of the Andalus Library of Timbuktu (Kati library), has spent years trying to retrieve his family's manuscripts and with them, his own Al Andalus past.
