Hamada

Allowed 89 minutes 2018 8.1

Forty years ago, the Sahrawi people were driven out of Western Sahara by Morocco. Since then, they have lived in a refugee camp among the sand dunes in the middle of the desolate and hot Sahara Desert. The younger generation in the camp have never seen their parents' homeland, which is now behind a military wall and beyond a minefield, unattainable for them. The documentary Hamada follows a group of young people who live their lives in the camp. Zaara wants to learn to drive a car and ignores the fact that women in the camp do not usually drive. Taher likes to take the day as it comes and has no major ambitions in life, while Sidahmed feels the temptation to go to Spain to try to get away from the camp and create a better life for himself.
