  • 2 Slider Image

Directed by Iara Lee, this film documents a struggle for self-determination, life, and the pursuit of peace. Forty years after its people were promised freedom by departing Spanish rulers, Western Sahara remains Africa's last colony. This film chronicles the everyday violence experienced by Sahrawis living under Moroccan occupation and voices their struggle for self-determination through creative resistance and non-violence.

 This film is part of the Madison World Music Festival.
