Little Sahara

Those who do not know the Sahara think there is only sand in the desert. But in the desert there are children who play and draw and make movies, and who would like to not have to think about the war. In the desert there is a European colony, an occupied country called Western Sahara, where there are thousands of Sahrawi refugees living a hard life in exile. LITTLE SAHARA tells their story, the story of a supportive, resilient people who try to thrive and grow in the Hamada, where everything has a hard time growing.
