“The process of decolonisation in Western Sahara in the 1970s left the Sahrawis – the original inhabitants of the area – living in refugee camps in the Algerian desert. The documentary examines how this situation came to pass, and why not enough has been done about it, following in the steps of Javier Bardem and other film professionals in their efforts to attract the attentions of both the Spanish government and the UN. A powerful and poignant documentary, it states the consequences of irresponsible policies, and reveals how the dedication of an individual can help stave off despair, attracting attention to a forgotten issue.”
