“Four decades after the departure of the Spanish rulers promised its people freedom, Western Sahara remains Africa’s last colony. This film chronicles the daily violence experienced by Saharawis living under Moroccan occupation and expresses the aspirations of a desert people for whom the era of colonialism never ended”.

Nonviolence themes: PHYSICAL, MORAL, ECONOMIC

FICNOVA recognises in the film the effort to continue denouncing the hypocritical interests defended by Europe and the USA in the Sahara conflict, preventing the self-determination of a people.
