Nota da Realizadora
The Saharawi women face the thirst of the hamada, the curse of the desert, every day. They’ve built their refuge in a land where no one could survive before. For more than fourty years they’ve been holding out and taking care of their people there. They ensure every drop of water is distributed according to the needs of each family… and they wait and desire a different future for their kids. But there’s an even more terrible thirst in their throats, for which they find no relief. The Saharawi represent one of the oldest refugee groups in the world, who fled their homes in 1975 as a result of the Moroccan occupation of their homeland in Western Sahara, a Spanish Colony since 1884. In the independence process, Spain practically abandoned and sold them to Morocco. Today, the conflict remains unsolved and the Saharawi refugees still live in five camps in the Sahara desert on the extreme southwest tip of Algeria, heavily dependent on international assistance.
