La Badil to screen at FiSahara

La Badil to screen at FiSahara Image

Western Sahara documentary La Badil will be screening at FiSahara - the most remote and the most remarkable film festival in the world. It is a week-long gala of screenings, parallel activities and concerts deep in the Sahara desert, held in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Algeria from 8-13th October.

Filmed undercover in the Moroccan controlled territories of Western Sahara on the eve of the second anniversary of the 2010 uprisings, La Badil (No Other Choice) provides a insight into the rarely reported plight of the Sahrawi.

The FiSahara is a joint cultural project born of a shared dream, in 2003, between the Spanish filmmaker community and exiled Saharawi people: bring the film to one of the remotest parts of the world, refugee camps that are in Hammada , "the desert of deserts". Hundreds of people-actors, directors, journalists, donors and civil society travel annually to Dakhla camp to celebrate a week of screenings, workshops, concerts and other cultural activities.
