- Introduction: Five young women fled war and persecution throughout central Africa. In this uniquely artistic film, they become storytellers in their own right. Join us for this free BIFF feature documentary. Subtitled. 74 mins.
Despite living as refugees in Uganda for decades, it remains nearly impossible for women to create lives for themselves beyond the fences of the camp. In this coming-of-age documentary, five young women, who as children fled war and persecution in Rwanda, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, attempt to transcend the label “refugee” and the protracted refugee situation of living in limbo with few solutions in sight. Over the course of four years, these women share stories of their past and dreams of the future while daily navigating nearly insurmountable challenges to take charge of their lives. In this uniquely artistic film, the women become storytellers in their own right through drawings, poems and video self-documentation, bringing voice to an often unacknowledged aspect of the global refugee crisis: What it means to be a refugee your entire life. Subtitled. Directed by Gayle Nosal and Beret Strong. USA/Uganda, Feature Documentary, 2016, 74 minutes
