Lost Territory [screening]
A wall 2,400 km long built by the Moroccan army splits the Western Sahara into two parts, one occupied by Morocco, the other under the control of the Western Sahara Liberation Front (Polisario).
Pierre-Yves Vandeweerd was born in 1969 in Belgium. He studied Information, Journalism and Communication, anthropology and African Civilisations.

His films have mostly been filmed in Africa. His cinema aims to forge links between man and the world, between unique and universal stories.
