Since 1981, Western Sahara is divided by a wall that splits the country in two. ON the one side, the Polisario Front (a revolutionary force fighting for independence). On the other side, the territories under military occupation by the State of Morocco, which in spite of the 1991 peace agreement keeps its presence with the support of Europe and the United States. Cinema is a major weapon in the Sahrawi struggle to end Moroccan occupation—groups of activists record, spread and expose the violence to which they are subject.
