Born into a Sahrawi refugee camp before being sent to live with foster parents in Spain, Fatimetu returns to her Saharan birthplace following the death of her mother and, despite having been absent for sixteen years, finds herself expected to resume family duties. With unprecedented access to the Sahrawi community, who are still waiting for status under international law, Wilaya is Pedro Pérez Rosado’s poetic evocation of being caught between two worlds.
Join us afterwards for a discussion with Travis Landry, associate professor of Spanish.
