Lost Territory [screening]

“DESERT” THEME

BELGIUM

Film trailer

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).
Based on stories of flight and exile, endless waiting, lives cut-off and persecuted, from both sides of the wall, “Lost Territory” provides a picture of the Saharan people, their territory and their confinement to one another’s dreams. Against a backdrop of enhanced reality, this film resounds like a disparate partition between sound landscapes, black and white portraits and nomadic poetics. Pierre-Yves Vandeweerd is a Belgian filmmaker.
His films express reality and have been, for the most part, filmed in Africa. A result of the encounter, sometimes also from the confrontation with reality, his cinema aims to forge links between man and the world, between unique and universal stories.
