South Sudanese, Refugees in the West Nile Region
ES 2019, R: Joakim M. Vila, 51 Min, OmeU
"SOUTH SUDANESE, Refugees in the West Nile region" is an independent documentary by Joakim M. Vila that tells the story of refugees fleeing a bloody civil war and looking for a safe place beyond their borders. Uganda will be the host country that will receive more than one million South Sudanese, the vast majority in the northern West Nile region, and who will give them assistance, protection and a new home in one of the 22 refugee settlements. The documentary makes a humanized journey of refugees from their arrival at the border, their transfer to reception and transit centers, their passage from medical examinations and biometric records to health centers, educational centers and orphanages. It will be the South Sudanese, the refugees themselves, who will give an account through their experiences, brave witnesses and war victims who will delve into their silenced world to let us know that theirs is also something for everyone.
