Hamada
Documentary: Sweden, Norway, Germany (2018)
Director: Eloy Domínguez Serén
Running time: 88 mins
Languages: Hassaniya, Arabic, Spanish with English subtitles

With vitality, humor and unexpected situations, this film paints an unusual portrait of a group of young friends living in a refugee camp in the middle of the stony Saharan desert.

A minefield and the second largest military wall in the world separates this group of friends from their homeland that they have only heard about in their parent’s stories. They are called the Sahrawis and have been abandoned in this refugee camp in the middle of a stony desert ever since Morocco drove them out of Western Sahara forty years ago. Trapped somewhere in between life and death, Sidahmed, Zaara and Taher refuse to be bothered by it. They spend their days fixing cars that can’t really take them anywhere, fighting for political change without response and together they use the power of creativity and play to denounce the reality around them and expand beyond the borders of the camp.

This screening is presented in collaboration with IberoDocs and will be followed by a post-screening discussion.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for GRAMNet/BEMIS Film Series: Hamada are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
