Filmmaking as resistance in Western Sahara!

Filmmaking as resistance in Western Sahara!

Through Nomads HRC, we're thrilled to be supporting a Sahrawi refugee studying film at the Madrid Film Institute! Our grant is helping fund Sidahmed Salec Labeid, a young filmmaker from the Sahrawi refugee camps. Sidahmed's goal is to return to the refugee camps as a film instructor and teach at the local film school.

Sidahmed and other Sahrawi filmmakers are collectively giving birth to Sahrawi cinematography and are teaching young refugees the art of visual storytelling—one of the most powerful and necessary tools to raise international awareness about the forgotten conflict in Western Sahara.
